This article is dedicated to the questions of conservation and exposition of tombstones in Tallinn's St Nicholas' Church undertaken under the guidance of the art historian Mai Lumiste in the 1970s. The restoration of these grave markers is analysed in the wider context of conservation methods and practices in Soviet Estonia. In addition, the article addresses the issues of the conservation and exposition of tombstones in other churches in Tallinn. An overview of the history of and research on these grave markers is provided, including their fate and reception before the conservation work in the 1970s
