Tombstone lettering — Serif

I was wondering if this lettering is a font or based on a font.
Thanks in advance!


More likely a stonecutter’s fancy, rather than a specific typeface. A few of the letters show mediæval influence—such as the A and R—while the balance have a strong traditional Roman character.

Also note that some letterforms—such as the M—vary considerably in width from line to line.

Okey, thank you for the helpful information!
