This broken headstone probably had a circular Celtic cross on top. It is located Unser bushes a few metres south of the south path just before you reach the central path. The carved inscription is very eroded.

Emma was the daughter of John and Maria and was baptised at Mill Street Independent Chapel, Wincanton on 22 November 1799. In 1851 she was living with her nephew John Markby in Middleton, Suffolk.
