Forgan Kirkyard - The Gravestones

These inscriptions were recorded between 1992 and 1997. Some of the photos were taken at that time but most have been taken within the past 10 years. Since I did the original surveys, weather and time have taken their toll - some of the inscriptions are no longer visible and some stones have fallen face down.

Quite a few photos have still to be taken.

Most of the inscriptions are on the east side of the stones. Where there are inscriptions on more than 1 side, this is indicated.
