Hopefuly the picture is the right "The Moss"

I am currently researching the life and times of Col. William Massey of The Moss, Audlem, 1600-1668.

He was part of Sir George Booths regiment of Parliamentarians in 1645, and had 160 men with him. The regiment seems to have had over 700 men at that time. It had at least 12 engagements, including the siege of Nantwich 1644, and the siege of Chester

From 1646 he was active on a number of commissions and was a governor of Chester castle at one point.

I presume he was buried 1668 at Audlem church yard, followed in 1672 by his wife Dorothy Cotton.

Can anyone tell me if there is any grave stone or commemorative plaque to this man?

Or indeed any further local information.

Thank you
