G'day Kevin,

I can only verify that I have seen the stone.  
Just _which_ William is beyond my capabilities to prove.   
It has the floriated cross with an accompanying sword parallel to it.  
The stone is mounted on a very recent base, which I am pretty certain 
Niven arranged, to preserve it more effectively. Perhaps Niven may
comment on this now that he is back from his trip abroad.

There is a much clearer photo, and a later detail shot (both by Michael 
Green), in Tim's book "The Templar Legacy & The Masonic Inheritance 
Within Rosslyn Chapel."
The same photo is also on the back cover of the book.  It is captioned as:
"Gravestone of Sir William de Sinncler".
Tim may also be able to shed some light on which William it refers to.
