A Recording Of The Inscriptions And Carvings By William E Wolsey
The re-instatement and re-establishment of the fallen, buried and sunken tombstones of Tulliallan Kirkyard was carried out by William Wolsey and William Anderson of the Kincardine Local History Group. It should be stated that without the practical and innovative skills of William Anderson the task would never have been attempted
Work on the 17th and 18th century stones was rewarding and comparatively straight forward but many of the 19th century monuments were balanced on brick supports which were disintegrating and had become extremely insecure. In the interests of general safety it was necessary to rectify this situation and to install concrete bases. Funds for the purchase of sand, gravel and cement for these repairs were made available from the 'Loutit Bequest Fund', the late Captain Loutit having left a legacy to be used for the maintenance of the family graves and for keeping Tulliallan Kirkyard tidy.
Particular acknowledgement is made for the extreme generousity of the 'Sir Harold Mitchell Foundation Trust' for financing the professional services of Watson Stonecraft for the restoration of broken and damaged stones.
Last but not least I would wish to express grateful appreciation to my daughter Shirley for the tedious work of transcribing and setting out.
