Early grave marker

These grave markers are at Cabourne. The top one is pre-Conquest and the bottom one Victorian. We took the pictures yesterday when visiting three near by churches (the other two were at Nettleton and Swallow) each open as part of the annual West Lindsey Open Churches event and each with pre-Conquest tower arches and west doors, treasures under our noses that we hadn’t appreciated before. There does seem to be quite a cluster of these pre-Conquest towers on our door step with two even closer at hand at both Clee and Scartho on the edge of Grimsby, but I don't remember having come across such an early grave marker near by before.
