Curator Janet Spargo with a 1920s Flapper Dress This is a new style of project for Falmouth DFAS. The concept and structure has been approved by NADFAS house and work has just started.

The idea is that we will record the details of the fabric and contents of the churchyard. This will involve producing a plan of the gravestones and their stories, the flora and fauna, and its surroundings.  The intention is to create a record or snapshot in time of this historic and beautiful place and of some of the people who have contributed variously to its present state.
