Recording Gravestone Inscriptions at Linton, Roxburghshire

This video talks about why our volunteers record gravestone inscriptions (or tombstone / monumental inscriptions), and what information is available. We thank, gratefully, ITV Border News, for supplying us with a copy of the video and for permission to publish it.
The lady in the red pullover is Catherine Fish, the lady in the grey top is Jean Fleming, and the man in the navy blue shirt is our late chairman, David Rudram.
