This is what webmaster Roland gets up to in his leisure time. When it comes to grave inscriptions Roland likes to find out all there is to know, even if it means a bit of digging. It was all under the watchful eye of St. Leonard's, Heston official Church photographer, Lynda Hardy. See our December Journal for much more on this story.
