Porter presents the incriptions from more than fourteen hundred tombstones from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries found in the oldest cemetery of Norwich, Connecticut. Many of the tombstones contain multiple names, so information is included on nearly three thousand residents of Norwich.

The compiler prefaces the inscriptions with a history of the Old Burying Ground. He notes that, although the town had been founded in 1659, no stones have survived for any burials prior to 1700. He attempts to reconstruct a list of those persons probably buried in the cemetery prior to that date. Also, he notes, many more Norwich inhabitants were buried here for whom no stone survives.

The volume includes photographs of a number of the more interesting stones, and concludes with a complete index of all names found on the surviving stones.
