Due to the badly eroded stone this monument was not fully identified by the CFHS in their survey of 2000.

We have used the CFHS transcripts of the grave register and burial records to create this post.

Fallen headstone, located in the second row north of the east west path that bisects the parish, at the east end.

This is all that was  recorded of the original inscription and now that the headstone has fallen face down nothing can be seen.
