This magnificent old 17th century symbolic headstone depicts the 'King of Terrors' and stands at an impressive 1.5 metres. The standing skeleton with a weapon of death - the scythe, is the personification of Death (the King of Terrors). The symbols on the right from top to bottom are: the grave-digger's tools of a crossed spade and turf-cutter; and a Deid Bell. This handbell was rung to give notice of funerals and at the funeral itself. A further symbol (now unfortunately weathered away) would have been an hour-glass (indicating the passing of time). A skull representing Death and crossed bones complete the emblems of mortality on this headstone.
