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)'.
