Above the shield is a helmet, mantling and foliage, with a dog's head above, and surmounting the whole is a scroll, the inscrption of which is now illegible, but has been given as [KEIP] TRAIST.

The initials RI and EE are carved above and below the shield respectively.The stone was recorded as lying against the east wall of the south transept in 1900.
