Listing Text

SP 1917-2017
9/158 Row of 8 monuments in the churchyard
of the Church of St John the Baptist
c6m west of the David Ansell
Row of 8 headstones. Limestone. Mid-late C18. The earlier
headstones in the group have segmental heads, the later have canted
heads. All 8 have winged cherubs' heads, varying in detail, above
their inscription plaques. The decoration on the earlier
headstones tends to be in bolder relief than that on the later.
The most notable headstones in the group are that second from the
left, which has a small winged cherub's head, with wings folded
down, flanked by open bibles at the top, and the headstone fourth
from the left (the tallest in the group) which has a small winged
cherub's head with down-folded wings at the top, flanked by cherubs
each holding a trumpet. The sunken segmental-headed inscription
plaque includes the date 1746 and is flanked by raised margins with
stiff foliate decoration. The inscriptions are mostly illegible
but that at the far right-hand end is to Peter (?)Cambray, died
1764. The headstone third from the right-hand end is to Robert
Cambray, died 1772.
