Chest tomb and railed enclosure. Late C18. Ashlar and cast iron. Bold
corner balusters, moulded cornice, flat top, inscription panel framed by
swags of drapery. Low railings of rectangular plan, cast iron standards
linked by 2 rails. South inscription: "Sacred to the Memory of Sir David
Williams Baronet/ of Goldinoton in Hertfordshire and Clifford Court in
Herefordshire/ [ 9 lines omitted ]/ His Soul took its flight from this
vale of misery/ Jany 21st 1798 in the 32nd Year of his Age/ [ 3 more lines]".
