This is an illustrated collection of epitaphs divided into sections, such as death, resurrection, the professions and trades, eulogies and epitaphs quaint and curious. The book contains a wide range of photographs depicting the stones on which the epitaphs are carved or written. Many of the stones are artfully sculpted indicators of the fashions of past times. Some of the stones are eccentric and peculiar, but all yield insights into the society of times past. The epitaphs tell about the people buried in the churchyards: fragments of the lives and characters of pedlars and gamekeepers; and ministers and authors who may have lived in very different times, but certainly had their mortality in common with us.

Death; resurrection; the professions and trades; eulogies; epitaphs quaint and curious.
