Explore more than 9,500 monumental inscriptions from over 25 parishes. Monumental inscriptions are a great addition to your family research because they often include details which cannot be found in burial registers; such as, the names of parents and spouses, descriptions of the headstone or monument dedicated to your ancestor and, for those who served with the military, you will often find military rank and regiment. The collection also includes war memorials; such as a brass plaque and memorial book located in St. George’s Chapel in East Dereham. The plaque is dedicated to those who died in Japanese Prisoner of War Camps from 1939 to 1945.
