This comprehensive work looks at its quarrying, usage and distribution across the north-east. Whilst there is no evidence of the stones use in building work, it was used in a range of other monuments such as cross ledger and incised slabs, tomb chests, fonts, and most importantly as the setting for memorial brasses.

Patterns of patronage are noted and the appendices contain a complete list of Egglestone marble pieces with evidence for dating and patronage.
