      On the question of lairs and gravestones, it seems that the lair records
      are more reliable than monumental inscriptions. Not only was the erection
      or otherwise of a gravestone up to the family (and possibly affected by their
      financial circumstances) but the names recorded on the gravestone do not
      necessarily represent people buried there. I know of several cases among
      my own ancestors where a monument was erected in memory of one or two people,
      and then later the names of others who died elsewhere, for example in England,
      were added to the stone.
