GV II

Headstone or footstone. Probably early C19. Slate. Shouldered, round-headed headstone inscribed with a long verse with no date and no name. Well-cut border, arabesques cut in the head. The verse is written as from dead parents to their children ... "Weep not for us our children dear/Look on your tender parents here/Amd live in love and in God's fear/that we in Heaven may all appear/Were (sic) everlasting joys abound/And sorrows shall no more be found". The tradition of stones with verses with neither name nor date is also found at St Giles in the wood, the neighbouring parish. The earliest examples appear to be C18.
