Notes: 

Mural monument of stylised neo-Classical type. The monument is in three tiers- a pediment above an inscribed panel which in turn rests on a base. The pediment is predominantly plain. The main body of the tomb takes the form of a large rectangular central slab on a two step base with an incised border around the large rectangular central stone. This is in turn divided by an incised horizontal line which divides the two inscriptions. In essence this creates two rectangular text panels. The base is a rectangular plain plinth.

Notes: 

Inscribed Graveslab 13th-14th century Upper half of a graveslab reused as a quoin-stone in the north-east corner of the east wall of the church. The slab bears an incised simple-floriated cross rising from an orb above the cross-shaft. The cross-head spandrels are occupied by incised circles. The sinister and dexter of the cross-head bears the original chamfer and the top and base is truncated. An incised inscription in Roman capital occupies the sinister below the cross-head. It reads: R R I B Bradley (1980) dates that slab to the late sixteenth or early seventeenth century though the cross-head is of 13th-14th century form, perhaps indicating the slab was reused.
