Ledger with incised rectangular panel. Base section missing. Upper section in three fragments (broke along pre-existing cracks during excavation.) Not associated with any underlying structure (plinth or shaft), so possibly not in situ:

[BR: Mr William LEDWELL, buried 15 November 1716. Mr Thomas LEDWELL of "Allsant" buried 22 July 1717. Final inscription is probably: Mr Thomas LEDWELL, buried in the church, 13 April 1727.]

[Thomas LEDWELL married Mary WOODLEY at this church on 11 December 1681. Thomas, their first son was baptised 11 May 1683, and William their third son was baptised 17 October 1686. Both these dates are in good agreement with the ages on the ledger.]
