(o) INDENTS

In the centre aisle there is a very badly worn indent (a flat slab recessed to receive a memorial brass). It is a black marble slab measuring 30" x 70" (0.76m x 1.78m). The positioning of the extant metal studs seems to indicate that the missing brass once consisted of an inscription and two kneeling figures beneath an ornate cross. It was probably of the 15th century.

A second indent exists near to, and east of, the south door. The item is a light coloured stone 0.53m x 0.81m which is split across its broad dimension. The two missing brasses were of figures 0.34m high, a female on the left and a male on the right. Both have holes for fixing the brasses, and the remains of a brass rivet exists in the neck of the female figure. It is thought that this Indent has not been previously recorded. An early estimate puts the date of the stone c. 1500.

According to a parishioner who was present when the south aisle was relaid in 1972/73, this stone was incorporated. It had recently been found in use as a doorstep to the rear entrance of No. 2 Church Cottages. Fortunately the indented face had been set downwards and the outline of the figures remains fairly clear.

(p) UNREADABLE

This stone coloured memorial is either extremely worn or upside down. In the late 19th century F A Wood recorded three ledger stones set in the nave. The only one of these not now traceable elsewhere was to Anne Benning. It read: "Here lieth buried ye Body of Mrs Anna Benning wife of Thomas Benning of this Parish Gent: daughter of Thomas Bosse of Barton in ye County of Bucks, Gent: who departed this life the 12th of December Ano Dmi 1658 aged 34 yeares. And had Issue on sonn." Possibly this stone is Mrs Benning's.

(r) "ALTAR STONE"

There is an unusual black stone, very worn, and of great age, set towards the rear of the nave centre aisle. It measures 26" x 85" (0.66m x 2.16m), an unlikely size for a ledger stone. It has been referred to locally as the "Altar Stone", the implication being that it was in use as the centre piece for worship in pre-reformation days of St. Mary's church. Reference of 1839 refers to "the altar piece, which is Roman and very heavy". This was removed during the 1852 restoration and may have been laid in the nave floor. If so, it could be the oldest item the church possesses.

(s) HOLLAND

In the now unused North Porch are at least 2 flat stone memorials, one of which is to Emma Holland 1792-1830.
