Two chest tombs in railed enclosure. Early C19. Ashlar and wrought iron.

panel flanked by borders of stylised flowers, moulded cornice, bevelled top.
Inscription: "Sacred to the Memory/ of/ Lewis Chambers/ late of the Lower
Court/ in this Parish/ who departed this life/ 20th of May/ 1810/ aged
73 years". South tomb: bold corner balusters decorated with paterae,
raised inscription panel flanked by borders of classical urns above floral
motifs; fluted frieze, moulded cornice, bevelled top. Inscription: "Sacred/
to the Memory of Ann, Relict of the/ late Lewis Chambers, she departed/ this

good examples of stone masonry and enhance the setting of the church; they
contribute to the group value of the other memorials in the churchyard.
