Work on the churchyard mapping project is nearing completion. Memorial transcription work however continues with group Memorial Transcription Days being held in the churchyard on Saturday March 16th and Saturday March 23rd from 9.30 am.
All volunteers are welcome even if you have not done memorial transcription work before. You will be given all the information you need for safe working in the churchyard and the practical procedures for data collection on the day, so please come along for a taster session.
Information collected from memorial inscriptions, the grave condition, and its location will be transcribed onto a ‘pro-forma’ ready for uploading onto the Christ Church Burial Database on our website.
Once the practical procedures for data collection and safe working have been experienced, individuals will be able to visit the churchyard in the future as and when an individual’s time permits.
