About the Book

Did you know that an obelisk with a tapered column at the top symbolises eternal life or that measuring scales are often found on the grave of a person in the legal profession?

Monuments and Masons is a unique industry history – about the stonemasons and the shapes, symbols and fascinating tales attached to their work. With its stunning pictures and astonishing tales, Monuments and Masons is a must for historians, genealogists, sculptors and anyone fascinated by cemeteries and their imagery.
