Headstone Transcripts COMPLETED
« on: Sunday 06 February 05 05:34 GMT (UK) »
Hello all!
Can anyone tell me how I might obtain a headstone transcript for a relative who is buried within the church itself? (James RICHES, d. 1803)
Thank you for taking the trouble to read my request.

Hi there

You could drop an e-mail to the local Church Warden if they are listed in a search. If not, try the telephone directory to see if there is a shop in the village still or a school, ring up & ask. 

If this all draws a blank you can try to locate a history of the Church in the Norfolk Churches website.

If all else fails you could pay a local to go in and take a transcription or photographs or both!

Best of luck.

Hi
I don't know if this is of any help to you, but I actually live a few miles away from Wiggenhall St Mary's and if you can wait a few days, I would be willing to go to the church and photograph and transcribe the headstone for you.
Do you mean by 'buried in the church itself' that the stone is inside the church?
If you send me a personal message with your email address then I will email the pic and transcription later in the week, (thats if you'd like me to do it?)

PS

Hi Again
Just one more question, there are 2 Wiggenhall St Mary's
One is St Mary Magdalene and the other is St Mary the Virgin. Any idea which of the 2 it is?
