Mike Grose has long been involved in the recording of Monumental Inscriptions in many churchyards around North Staffs & South Cheshire, as well as transcribing Mike is the main map or plan creator. His skill and talent in this field is second to none, he spends hundreds of hours making the graveyard plan as accurate and as near perfect that is possible. This, as many of you will know, is extremely difficult to achieve in those unused and uncared for churchyards that have to be recorded.
Some years ago Mike wrote this short poem, which I feel needs to be seen and appreciated by more of the people who have also carried out the tiring work of recording these churchyards and church monuments. I think that they may understand the sentiments within the text.
