Parish record extract

I would be grateful if anyone might be able to suggest a reading of the name (abbreviated?) which seems to follow the date here.

I’d be very grateful if anyone could suggest what the word (abbreviation?) is between the date and “Rebecca”.

The name of the person buried appears to be:  Rebecc? Heath

The last letter of the forename isn't clear.

There's a word before the forename which also isn't clear.

A bigger clip would help establish the form of entry used by the clergyman.

It might help if we could have a few further details of this entry - country, county, parish etc. 
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Sorry, it’s my first attempt at posting and clearly not very successful. I thought at first that I was posting too large a file, and so tried to intercept it. Hopefully, I’ll improve :)

No worries, didn't mean to nag...you have obviously got the knack now anyway.

It is Clifton Campville, Staffs. 1768. I essentially agree with the transcript on a website which must be nameless, but I wonder if there is more to it.

Could it be the rest of the date? 

Something like "Jany 31" ?
