This is a carefully prepared book, Book of the Names of the Dead, which allows parishioners to write in the names of their dead loved ones to be honored. Many parishes have these books and read the names on All Souls day in November. The Book of the Names of the Dead features a gold embossed cover with an inscription page inside for the name of the parish. Following the inscription page are lined pages for parishioners to record the names of their loved ones. The Book of the Dead measures 9x12 and has 128 pages so should be of use in the parish for a number of years to come. These pages also include English quotations from the Order of Christian Funerals which may be a source of comfort during times of grief as parishioners inscribe names of loved ones who have died.
