7/135 Anonymous headstone approximately
- 11 metres south-south-east of
tower of Church of St Michael
Headstone. Dated 1739 and although the full legend is legible no name is mentioned.
Limestone. Upright slab standing approximately 800 mm high with shaped head. The
flat front has a moulded frame terminating in a bifurcated scroll at the top. Below
this is a winged cherub head in low relief. The inscription is in Roman serif
upper and lower case lettering. It records the death of an anonymous lady in 1739
finishing with a biblical quote. Though worn the inscription is legible and most
unusual in that no name is recorded. It begins: 'Here lyeth the body of her who
departed this life....(etc)'.
