Sunday Styles: Ledger Stone

Ledger stone-  are usually 3’ x 6’ rectangular grave marker of stone laid flat over a grave, or combined with box or table tombs. When combined with box or table tombs they set on the top of box and table tombs. Ledgers generally contain detailed information about the deceased.


  1. i don't know if you have these where you live, but out here in idaho some of the older graves have "wolf stones"--like ledgers but basically just plain slabs of stone, or sometimes piles of stones. they're called wolf stones because they were used to keep animals from digging up the dead.

  2. I believe what you are describing would fall under the style of a "Rock Cairn" if you search my styles tags I have post a description and a few pics. But honestly I like the name "wolf stones" better. Thanks for sharing. Sadly I have never been to Idaho.
