Image of the feature "V. Furnishings: Grave-slabs" at Halifax.

by John McElheran.

Some are 'loose', but, according to Ryder, (1991) more fragments, less easily seen, were built into the fabric.

Ryder identifies six grave-slabs that appear to be of 12thc. date (1991, 25-26), and many other remnants that could be of the same period.

Ryder's slabs 1-4 are fixed by metal brackets to the wall of the S porch.
