A transcription of the Memorial Inscriptions found in the churchyard at Southfleet, Kent, by Mr L. Leland Duncan on occasions during visits ending in May 1922. He made his notes in his own shorthand, in hard-to-read pencil, in a little field notebook measuring 4 x 7 inches which over time, in the past hundred years, the paper has aged and yellowed. The notebooks are now in the Library of the Kent Archaeological Society.
