Comment
This is one of two tombstones which were brought to the Quaker Burial Ground and Meeting House on Over Lane from the old Burial site on Dibb Lane. 
The laying of the LMS Railway Line through the Dibb Lane Site was the reason for the removal.

" Here lyeth interred the body of Joshua Overend of Guiseley the youngest son of William Overend who departed this life the first day of the sixth month called August in the 16th year of his age anno domini 1696"

    The mention of August as the sixth month relates to the use of the Julian calendar, it was replaced by the Gregorian calendar in 1582.
