The entry for Whittington has in brackets afterwards (Barclay T/S ) and also (Williams T/S).

Can someone please explain what this means?

Many thanks, Ben Hughes

Hello Ben

There are two different transcripts of Whittington MIs done by two different people, Barclay and Williams.

The Williams transcript is by far the most detailed.  It includes the area around the church plus the old churchyard across the road from the church and the Cemetery in Daisy Lane.  The monuments inside the church have also been included. In total there are about a thousand inscriptions.

If you are thinking of buying a copy the Williams one is the one to get.
