Quite often one comes across ledgers in churches bearing just initials and a year inscribed upon them. To some extent this was a money-saving venture on the part of those who had also erected a mural monument to the deceased, as witnessed by this monument to Louise Bertrand (d.1789) at Mold, Flintshire.
