Inscription.

Old tomb in ruins

This along with some nearby flat monuments are in the positions which are described as tombs rather than slabs. Due to the moss growth now totally covering the memorial no identification can be made, however, the tombs themselves which were in poor condition in 1834 may have been removed with just the covering slab left behind.

A slab was said to have been incorporated into the original monument which carried the partial inscription:-
