pyramidal top, corner pilasters with incised Greek key ornament, moulded base on
square slab to chamfered sub-base on a platform shared with adjoining monument
(b). Some incised lettering all badly eroded, except to east, records Samuel

moulded edge, inset corners, moulded frieze; elliptical panels east and west,
fielded panels north and south, moulded base on platform shared with (a). Inset
