Gravestone in Colwick churchyard
Gravestone in Colwick churchyard
This is one of a number of well-preserved slate gravestones. The inscription has been painstakingly carved, but the inscriber has generally struggled to maintain the correct spacing, running out of room in several instances. The last line states that poor Iohn Gray died "in ye 2d year of his age". Although the superscription of the 'e' in 'ye' was common, the same technique has also been used for the word 'age' at the end of the last line.
