pyramidal capping to a moulded edge over plain frieze; inscription panels raised
and shaped; cavetto-mould base on step. Much lettering still decipherable,

to north, set to the stone paving, a series of engraved plates, the latest date
1970; also first plate records seven children aged at death, respectively: 6
months, 1 hour, 4 years, 22 years, 21 years, 24 years and 19 years. Set imme-
