Changes in the way that photographs were taken have led to different methods of preservation. The advent of the digital camera has made photography more accessible as well as easier to use. It has benefited the research method in the field. The preservation of the photograph has also been improved, and methods of storing photographs have also improved. These have all aided in recording key historical information particularly found on headstones. Changing traditions in the use of motifs and epitaphs on headstones in England have been noted through the use of digital photographs.

Keywords: Churchyard, epitaphs, headstone, in-field issues, motifs, preservation, vandalism.
