Monumental Inscriptions, Cemeteries and Graveyards of Roxburghshire

Image right - Lilliesleaf Parish Church


The aim of this project is to gather together information regarding cemeteries and graveyards in the county which either have available transcriptions or have been photographed and transcribed.


Please update the project by adding links to any available monumental inscriptions or pages where images of the graves/cemeteries can be seen - mostly Billion Graves or Find a Grave.
