Description: This fragment was found in the churchyard wall c.1890. This stone was found in the churchyard. Only the head of the memorial survives, and part of the face has flaked away.

The stone itself is wheel-headed so as to reflect the outline of the sculpture, which comprises an equal-armed ‘Celtic’ cross set within a ring. The cross is edged with a single moulding, the ring with double bead mouldings. In the centre of the cross is carved a small ring.
