Bert LAZEROW wrot :
"...I do not know if these complete and graceful inscriptions are
still used by French Jews."

Formely, the inscriptions were varied.
Sometimes you could also find the place and date of birth.
Last century the maiden names could be absent or present.
It is the same nowadays.

In fact, the price of the inscriptions depend on the number
of letters to be engraved.
As manuel work is much more expensive to-day,
there is a tendance to save money on this.
But you can still find some inscriptions as you like them.
