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

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.

Could it be Lucy Rebecca Heath ?

I think the date could be Jany 21.

A larger clip would help, as has been suggested.
