Headstone. Probably late C17. Upright sandstone slab standing approx 400mm
high. Its head is shaped like a biforcated scroll and is carved with scrolls
either side of a skull and crossbones. Below a fielded panel is inscribed
with Roman serif upper and lower case lettering. It is so worn as to be
legible only in perfect lighting conditions. The Christian name William can
be made out but the date of his death is buried.
