Gravestones Already Restored

To date, over 90 gravestones have been conserved. The conservation work might have been as simple as cleaning and re-capping a slate stone. Most of the work has necessitated removing the gravestone from the ground and cleaning and re-setting the stone in a bed of sand and peastone. The more complex work has required performing the previous steps and epoxy bonding of fragments with pinning and clamping.

The following list is a representative sample of various gravestones that have been conserved to date. The gravestone is identified by the person memorialized and date of death. Before and after conservation photographs dramatically show what has been saved for future generations. To attain that goal, the photographs also give evidence to the amount of labor that has been expended.
