A tomb in the neo-classical/baroque manner which might be C18 but is probably early C19 as the other memorials around it.
Sarcophagus of white limestone ashlar in the shape of a wine cooler standing on a larger plinth. Each face of the plinth has a sunk panel and the corners project diagonally and each support a large volute. The lid of the sarcophagus has rim moulded with egg-and-dart and has a central ridge. The inscriptions are indecipherable, the tomb is partly coverd in ivy and is also damaged at the time of inspection with some fallen pieces.
Included as a fine and rare early C19 neo-classical tomb.
