A Gravestone Reads: "Beneath this earth lies the mortal remains of HANNAH the beloved wife of R. Cossentine and widow of Wm. Pearn who died the 6th July 1828 aged 55 years. In justice to her memory it can be truly said that she lived beloved and died regretted. A tribute of respect to a dearly beloved wife and a tender mother."
It stands beside the tombstone of her second husband Richard Cossentine. Thank you to Debbie Gomersall for the picture.
