Conservation and Repair of Grave Markers

Note: Do No Harm! Before you start any work on historic markers or tombstones, contact ich@heritagenl.ca to go over your plan for conservation. Do not add substances such as flour, face powder, bleach, chalk, chemical cleaners, shaving cream, etc, to markers - you should always prefer a non-invasive method to interact with gravestones. A powerful flashlight or mirror is your best bet for reading difficult inscriptions.
