The Monumental Inscriptions in the churchyard of Horsmonden Church
                                                                                        Noted by Leland L. Duncan  18th August 1922

The following is as far as possible an exact transcription of Mr L.L. Duncan's field notebook for the M.I.s at Horsmonden.  His notebook written up in his shorthand, in pencil, on the site leaves something to be desired. The paper of the notebook has over time become somewhat dirty and aged but is an immensely valuable record of that date.
