Unfortunately, during the Restoration of 1868, the font was removed from its original position, and placed within the tower, immediately over five alabaster monumental slabs, which were likewise removed from various parts of the church and placed here; owing to this mistake, the inscrip- tions on these latter cannot now be deciphered.
