Group of six monuments, comprising two tomb chests dated 1720 and 1715, one
headstone dated 1718, and three slabs dated 1680, 1740 and 1717. All
sandstone. Both tomb chests have sides of large rectangular blocks, finely-
lettered lids with the initial letters "H" and the dates in raised decorated
lettering set in sunk panels, that to Richard Driver (d.1720) with a moulded
edge, and that to Joseph Driver (d.1715) with border of 2 incised lines
scrolled outwards at the corners. Headstone to David Rhodes (d. 1718), very
close to west end of the latter tomb chest, is round-arched and shouldered,
and has a moulded surround with a roundel at the head enclosing a flower, and
elegant lettering. To the north and slightly east of these: memorial slab to
William Baildon (d.1680), with incised lettering all in capitals, a large
sunk shield at the foot, displaying 3 fleur de lys and flanked by raised
decorated initials "W" "B" in sunk panels, and a broad border of consecutive
scrolls; immediately next to the north side of this, slab to Anthony Smith
(d.1740), with raised date in sunk panel, border of 2 incised lines scrolled
outwards at the corners; and approx. 3 metres south-east of these, slab to
John Pollard (d.1717), similar in style to the lids of the two tomb chests
described above.
