Cant read anything!
« on: Sunday 22 March 09 18:31 GMT (UK) »
Ive tried taking numerous photos of this stone from all different angles but cant get it any better than this.

Is anyone brave enough to have a go with what it says?

Hi!

no, it won't open. When I tried to open it I got an error message.

Perhaps you should try re-posting it.

Judy  ;)
Best wishes, Judy :-))

Im when I save a picture as a jpg. I need to save using Standard encoding not Lossless. Rootschat has a hissy fit because it cant understand how its encoded.

Bit like me not understanding what the headstone says!

Hi Vasquez,

I have played with your image to try to make it more readable, and think it may say

If you can visit the stone, it might be worth trying to take a rubbing from it.  Either that or do what the Egyptologists do to read the hyrogliphs.  Use a bright torch and shine it sideways on so that the carved letters form a shadow.
East London:
Happe/Hoppe (St. Georges in the East)
Stanley (middle name Thurston)
Rondeau (Spitalfields and Salford)
Jones (Bishopsgate - Thomas, Ostrich Feather Manufacturer)
Wood (London City)
McDermott (Londonderry and Stepney)
Upcraft (Bethnal Green)
Chidgey (Shoredtich)
Grim (Bethnal Green)
Row (Mast makers in Wapping)
Spurden (Stepney and Pancras)
Glibbery (Bishopsgate)

Sorry, I cannot decipher it but if you can visit the stone again try wetting it.  Sometimes that makes the images easier to see.
