Welcome to Scottish Monumental Inscriptions

If you’re trying to find the burial ground of your ancestors or just looking for the information recorded on the headstone, then Scottish Monumental Inscriptions might be able to help you.

Scottish Monumental Inscriptions photograph and transcribe graveyards across Scotland.

These photographs are transcribed by volunteers and added to a fully searchable Windows compatible CD. The CD contains the master copy of each headstone along with any information we have managed to transcribe from the stone, also included are photographs of inside the Church if we have access and of the graveyard or cemetery.

We have now added digital PDF downloads to the website, these are text only files with no images and are suitable for Mac Users . If you find who your looking for in the PDF download and require a copy of the image, please feel free to email us and  for a small charge of £1 we will send your photo by email.

If you buy the PDF, please remember to save it to your desktop.

We have products listed monthly, so add us to your favourites and join our newsletter.
