this Life Dece-----

17[5]7 ---

This stone is very badly corroded and the date may be 1757 or 1777.

On the grounds that the size and style looks earlier than the headstone of the George Cave who died in 1771, and there is a burial record for a George Cave senior who was buried 8th Dec 1757, it is tentatively identified as belonging to the latter.
