The primary source referenced is by Richard Heape who carried out his survey between 1906 and 1925 and published his findings in 1926.

A number of the stones surveyed can be found in the Watergrove Wave Wall. Unfortunately many of the inscriptions have become eroded and are illegible. In these cases a sketch of the stone made by John B .Taylor of the Oldham and Rochdale Groundwork Trust in 1986 is included for clarity.
