Memorial Inscriptions Project

Monumental Inscriptions (MIs)

How to Access MI Information

Each link above takes you to an index page of the parishes for which we have transcriptions. At the top of the index page is a link to a summary sheet (PDF) that shows the name of the parish or place, the number of MIs by burial ground, the date range and the most frequent names.

By clicking on the parish name on the index page you’ll see a list of churches, chapels and burial grounds. These take you to PDF files which give the deceased name, burial date, age and other information. In addition for some places we have transcripts of each headstone, plans of the graveyard and photos of the church/chapel. This is noted in the comments section for the place concerned.

Points to Note

  • These are records made of the headstones that are seen in a graveyard and is not the complete record of the burials there
  • Every effort had been made to record the full inscription as accurately as possible given the condition of some headstones
  • If you find an error, please contact us with details and we will correct the transcription
  • Inscriptions in the Welsh Language are transcribed as seen on the headstones; spelling of some of the words may differ
  • These transcriptions have been produced to provide you with information for personal study and research only
  • Information on North Cardiganshire MI’s can be found on the Cardiganshire Family History Society website
  • Copyright remains with Dyfed Family History Society, so we ask that you do not make copies of any part of the data.

About This Project

Dyfed Family History Society has recognised the importance of transcribing monumental inscriptions since our inception in 1982. In 2011 the transcripts were digitized.

No headstone has been damaged whilst recording. Where there is damage to the stone this is recorded as such in the transcript.

Enquiries and Offers of Help

All the information on these MIs has been collected by our members and other volunteers. Please check the Society Spotlight for up to date details.

If you would like to volunteer to record a burial ground not yet on this site or you are willing to take photos of headstones to pass on to a member of the Society to write up or you have MIs you would like to donate. Please contact for further details or enquiry to:
