The oldest headstone still to be seen in the cemetery is that of Stephen Towse and it dates from 1698.

Stephen Towse was a Customs Man in Cobh in the 1600’s.  The inscription reads;

“Here lyeth the body of Stephen Towse who departed this life, the 26 day of October 1698.  Also his wife Eliza Towse who departed her life the 10 day of February and in the 84 Year of her age anno domini 1713.”
