This stone slab commemorates the lives of a couple who are buried in this churchyard. The skull is a common symbol used to memorialise people who have died. In the background is a flint-stone wall of the church. Flint was a common church building material in chalkland regions of England from Saxon times to the 20th Century. It is characteristic of churches in East Anglia and the South-East of England.
