Challenge to decipher inscription
Dec 22, 2012

I am an Irishman in Nigeria, and also a historian. I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC W320 camera.

I am trying to decipher the inscription on a headstone in a cemetery from Abeokuta, Nigeria. At first sight I could not see any inscription, but eventually, because I knew the name of the person, I was able to trace out the letters. However I was unable to decipher the remainder of the inscription. I know the person died about 1936 or a little later.

I have taken several photographs of the headstone (close up etc).  The name of the person can be seen, very faintly, on some of the photographs.  And there are other letters visible, but extremely faintly.

I need to know the date of death and the other information on the headstone.

Is there anyway I can process the photographs in order to find this information - or does anyone have equipment to do this - for which I can send the photos.
