Colombo Graveyards (S)

A collection of memorials (about 775) and biographical details from surveys and written records is recorded in this survey -  the first since 1913. Several tombstones have been lost from the early 20th century survey but many others not previously recorded were found in this later survey in 2008.

Copies of full memorial inscriptions are available for £4.00 including postage. To order please use our order form. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
