Ordering Transcripts, Photos, and Price Guide

Q. Where can I get the full monumental inscription or a photo of a tombstone I have found in the on-line databases?

A. Full individual transcripts and/or photographs, of all on-line tombstones (buried and visible) can be ordered direct from MBGRG.  You may also purchase Monumental Inscription Booklets, but only those published by MBGRG. Fill in our on-line, FREE, no obligation Quotation Request Form detailing your specific requirements, and we will email you back quoting a full price, including all handling, and where required, postage and packaging.  See below for our pricing guide.

Should you subsequently wish to accept our quote, and place an order, you can pay securely via PayPal, using a PayPal account, or a range of debit or credit cards at our Payment and Donation Centre.

The following notes, may help you in deciding your best option, depending on your particular requirements.
    This on-line site does not contain any full MI transcripts - only database summary information, abstracted from mainly published MI booklets. Within each cemetery or churchyard, each stone is allocated a unique identifying stone number. The summary data for each stone, consists of churchyard or cemetery name, unique stone number, surname, maiden surname, forenames, year of death, and comments, where available, for every person mentioned on that stone. Tombstone photographs are not available on-line.

    You can find the full transcript, in the relevant publication. This may be available for reference, in your local Library, or Family History Society, or you can purchase copies from the sources listed on our 'Publications' page.  Alternatively, you may prefer to order transcripts (some are Free) and/or photographs you require, directly from MBGRG.
   
It should be emphasised that MBGRG is a non-profit making, voluntary organisation and the small charges made are purely to assist defraying expenses.

    For many modern or well preserved tombstones, one photograph may be adequate, but others may require several images to fully represent the stone. Transcripts on very old stones, may have required specialised techniques to interpret the text, which may not show up clearly in the photographic record. Many of our clients also appreciate general churchyard views and/or tombstone location images.
When we reply to your Personal Quotation Request, we will advise you further.

    Should you accept our quotation, we would normally supply the data to you either by email, or posted to you on CD/DVD, at our discretion. Should you require paper prints, this would involve additional charges to cover processing and postal charges.
