GV II

Five chest tombs and one headstone, late C18 to mid C19. Described from NE to SW: (i) Lofty chest tomb, to ... SON of MARY BLOXHAM, 1813. Sandstone. Flat ledger to moulded edges, fielded panels long sides, inset ends with cornice and base mould, set to moulded base and on wide platform, formerly railed. The memorial is to a 22 month old child, and also refers to THOMAS BLOXHAM, d.1816 aged 10 weeks. Other names not legible. Immediately adjacent to the hedge; (ii) Chest tomb, to WILLIAM THAME OF HIGHGATE, 1834. Sandstone. Flat ledger to cavetto-moulded edges, raised panels long sides, inset ends on moulded base and set to broad platform, formerly railed. Set forward from preceding; (iii) Headstone, to JOHN HART, 1800. Sandstone. Thick stone to pointed head over carved cusping, with a moulded coffin slab running back to the hedge. Of interest, as John Hart referred to as "... 6th descendent from the Poet Shakespeare...". The design of the monument suggests a mid to late C19 date; (iv) Chest tomb, to ...PLAYER, 1852, but date 183-- also decipherable. Sandstone. Flat ledger to moulded edges, raised panels long sides, slightly inset ends, all on moulded base and wide platform. Inscriptions partly legible, and panels badly worn in places. Lies approx 2.5m from hedge and approx 3.5m SW of preceding; (v) Chest tomb, to THOMAS RUDGE, 1816. Sandstone. Flat ledger to moulded edges above frieze, raised panels, inset ends, on moulded base and platform, formerly railed. Good inscription to NE. Lies approximately 4m from hedge at SW end of this group; (vi) Small chest tomb, possibly mid to late C18. Unidentified. Sandstone. Flat ledger to moulded edges and inset corners, raised panels long sides, and inset ends with frieze and base mould, all to moulded base. This is badly worn, with the SE end spalling off, but retaining parts of finely cut inscriptions.
