18/241 Pair of adjacent anonymous head-
- stones approximately 34 metres
south-south-west of the tower of
the Church of St Giles


Pair of anonymous headstones. Undated, probably late C18. Both are slate. They
stand side by side. The left one is square-headed standing approximately 500
millimetres high. The right one is nowy-headed and stands approximately 650
millimetres high. Both are inscribed with Roman serif upper and lower case
lettering. Both are poetic epitaphs with no name or date included.
The left headstone inscription is addressed to parents and suggests it commemorates
the death of more than one infant. By contrast the right headstone inscription
speaks of an old person, "near ninety years" and is addressed to their "children's
children's children".
Both stones have been moved to here.
