In the Spring of 1996, 29 folk gathered in Prestonkirk Manse, East Linton, to begin the process of surveying all the gravestones in Prestonkirk Graveyard. The spirited group of volunteers completed their task two years later, and the publication Prestonkirk, East Lothian: Monumental Inscriptions (2000) provides a lasting memorial to the 743 gravestones then standing in that place of burial. Inspired by the results, the group expressed a desire to record another graveyard, and as during this time the parish of Prestonkirk had become united with those of Stenton and Whittingehame to form the Parish of Traprain, the group chose to move on to the peaceful graveyard nestling in the shade of the pretty Gothic kirk at Whittingehame. The few remaining residents of what is the largest parish (geographically) in East Lothian joined in the task, and in 2003 Whittingehame, East Lothian: Monumental Inscriptions was published - a permanent record of the 173 gravestones lying therein, together with a further 15 in the nearby Balfour family burial ground.
