The grid ref given here is that matching the spot where in 1913, an oak coffin was discovered during ploughing. It's 1.67m in length and contained a few teeth, remains of stitched calf skin, a drinking cup and flint scraper. Radiocarbon dates of 2400-2200BC were determined, suggesting an early BA date for the burial.

the C&R stone does not seem to have been part of this burial, but it's exact findspot is unclear.
