The base of this monument is No. 436 of which the top was in a ruinous state when photographed in the late 19th century. The coped stone was placed to the east of 436 when moved from No. 70 and numbered 432. It can be seen in the below photograph.
N.B. Mr Steel/ Steill is noted as the claimant in the register for number 432 and is also the claimant from where the coped sarcophagus lid came from at the location of No 70.
