Alex and crypt

Alex in front of a crypt.

The Tomb Inscriptions are all optional readings in Silent Hill: Homecoming. They are found in Rose Heights Cemetery, and while Alex Shepherd will frequently comment that he doesn't recognize certain names or that some are far too worn away to read, the majority may be examined by the player, offering history about past residents of Shepherd's Glen.
