You are more likely to find this book than Mary Rensten's book in a family history library - so it is a useful additional check list of which Hertfordshire churches have brasses.

The Monumental Brasses of Hertfordshire

by William Lack, H. Martin Stuchfield and Philip Whittemore

Monumental Brasses Society County Series, Volume 16


[Not seen]

Hertfordshire is the sixteenth volume to be published in the fully illustrated series of county publications based on an extensive revision of the List of Monumental Brasses in the British Isles compiled by Mill Stephenson (published in 1926 with an appendix in 1938).

The Hertfordshire volume is expected to contain 250 pages listing figure brasses, inscriptions, indents and lost brasses (illustrated on 100 pages) to be found in the county and will form a particularly important aid to people concerned with the study of monumental brasses and family history.
