Many thanks for the images, Mike!

I do hope the 1805 club can help with the restoration. Keep us posted!

Very slight damage at the top of the stone. Further damage at the bottom, which takes away part of the last sentence of the inscription. Good condition really after so many years. The damage at the bottom, I am told could cause damp/rain to erode the stone more in future.

The stone behind the grave in picture 1, a sort of body cover, does anyone know what this is called?
