Footstones were small headstone shaped stones placed at the foot of the grave, usually a reserve of the well to do, they only contained the initials and the year of death of those buried in the grave. As churchyards and cemeteries became crowded around the late 1850s and space a premium, footstones fell out of fashion. Today it is unusual to find footstones in situ, many have been either removed or placed against the headstone to aid grass cutting. Many more sadly fell victim to lawn cutting instruments and were damaged beyond repair.
