As shown in the Stones Index, we have identified 11 types of stone that can be found in the hundreds of memorials spread across the cathedral. Most (nine) are used only for memorials, i.e. not for the basic fabric or for the floors. A few, including Caen Stone and Purbeck Marble, have wider uses.
Notes on individual memorials appear in pages devoted to particular areas of the cathedral. Links to these are provided below. We have also prepared an A to Z list of all the memorials covered so far.
