Fabulous Training in the Cemetery

A big thanks to the Gloucester Cemetery Advisory Committee for coordinating a two day training session in First Parish and Clark’s Cemetery.  People came from all over the country to learn how to clean and repair tombstones, reset leaning tablet stones and restack large multilevel monuments.

We had some outstanding teachers.  Jonathan Appell of Atlas Preservation, Jason Church of the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, and Moss Rudley of the National Park Service Historic Preservation Training Center were all on hand to teach and help with the heavy lifting.

The inventor of D2 was on hand to discuss the correct usage of his amazing product.  Free samples were provided to the participants and D2 was provided for cleaning tombstones during the training.  Anyone familiar with tombstone cleaning can’t help but be in awe of this man and his product.
