Notes: At the centre of the graveyard stands this grey slab, bearing on one side an incised cross of unusual design. The upper arm terminates in two spirals and the lateral arms in circular rings. This is apparently a modern graveyard, with no sign of a chapel nearby, so the stone may have been brought here from elsewhere.
