Welcome to The Kabristan Archives
THE KABRISTAN ARCHIVES is an organisation dedicated to preserving memorial inscriptions from graveyards in Ireland, the Indian sub-continent, Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) and Jamaica, including many which no longer exist. They are presented here in a form which is easily accessible to the family historian. SEARCH or browse through THE KABRISTAN ARCHIVES for your relatives, find the inscription and we will supply a copy for £4 inc. postage worldwide. Maybe you are seeking more than just a memorial inscription then return to the past with THE KABRISTAN PUBLICATIONS and possibly we have the lives of your forbears on record. But remember all good stories may have a hint of embroidery and occasionally a minor error so we hope that you will forgive us if this happens. We are only as good as our sources. Send us an email if you're stuck and we will help you if we can. Finally read ABOUT US and share our journeys in search of your relatives and friends. You may be surprised at what you find, because dead men do tell tales.
'The wind whispers through the trees, Recalling words and dreams And memories of those who left us Long ago.'
