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 [email protected] or letter to Kirby Hall, 70 St Giles Street, Norwich NR2 1LS. 

This page provides a means to search the index of monumental inscriptions held by the Society. The index will show whether or not a survey of the monumental inscriptions for a particular Norfolk parish has been made. In some cases the survey may be incomplete or not very detailed.

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 search most of the monumental inscriptions on NORS, or if this does not produce a result, ask the Monumental Inscriptions coordinator to search the 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.
