Cultural heritage has continued to be explored by several organisations in the UK. Understanding heritage is important in learning about current society, and, in several ways, the churchyard is a strong source for learning about cultural history. The changing styles of headstone inscriptions provide information about the socioeconomics of a place; and regional styles provide information on the fashion of the time and the understanding of material culture.

Keywords: Churchyards, conservation, headstones, inscriptions, kirkyards, material culture.
