Upright stone standing approximately 1 metre high. It has chamfered plinth, a tapering shaft with a shaped head with moulded edges, comprising a diagonally-set square with circles on each side. The head has inset pattern of polychrome mosaic with sacred symbols in each of the circles. The shaft is inscribed with victorian gothic lettering and records the death of emily williama readord in 1872. This is one of a series of unusual headstones in the churchyard which are distinguished by their use of polychrome mosaic decoration. They are obviously the result of the rev w t a radford's interest in craftsmanship (doe).
