Monumental Inscriptions, sometimes known as Memorial Inscriptions or MI, are found on grave stones in Norfolk churchyards and cemeteries. They are also to be found inside churches and other buildings in the form of plaques, floor stones, stained glass windows, war memorials, etc.
The Norfolk Family History Society is trying to complete a survey all gravestones in Norfolk. If you would like to carry out a survey of a church, churchyard or cemetery please contact Monumental Inscription Co-ordinator, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or letter to Kirby Hall, 70 St Giles Street, Norwich NR2 1LS.
Some monumental inscriptions are taken from the under-mentioned publications:-
Walter Rye – Monumental Inscriptions of the Hundred of Happing – indexed – Abbrev.HP. Monumental Inscriptions of the Hundred of Tunstead – indexed –Abbrev.T. Erpingham Hundred Part 1. Monumental Inscriptions at end of Volume – Abbrev.E.
Walton Dew – Monumental Inscriptions of the Hundred of Holt – not indexed – Abbrev.HT
Norfolk Archaeology – Extracts from early issues relating to Monumental Brasses. Abbrev. NA
Members of the Norfolk Family History Society can try searching for a monumental inscription on NORS or, if this does not produce a result, ask the Monumental Inscriptions coordinator to do a search of records held by the Society.
Non-members may find offers for assistance in looking-up a monumental inscription on the Genuki / Norfolk Look-ups page.
