Edwin Dodds Epitaph books

In 1907, Edwin Dodds, a Newcastle bookbinder and stationer undertook an extensive survey of St Mary’s graveyard and produced a two volumed work detailing all the graves which were then in existence. He also added copious family history notes to many of them. This survey is invaluable and thanks to a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, both books have been fully digitised.
