A matter of life and death

Headstones mark the graves of ordinary people, and there are millions of them all over the country. Along with all sorts of other memorials, they provide valuable information for historians, genealogists, anthropologists… and the simply curious. However, weather, pollution and vandalism are all threatening some of our most valuable cultural references. If the information they bear is to be available for future generations, recording it is vital. “Recording Angels” was formed to do just that.
