Row of 6 headstones. Mid C18-early C19. To members of the Woodman
or Eelles families where inscriptions are legible. Far right-hand
headstone sandstone, all other headstones limestone. Winged
cherubs' heads at the top of all 5 limestone headstones. The
borders to the inscriptions of the two taller headstones are

earliest in the group and has a partially legible inscription
possibly including the date 1741.
