This fragment sat on Worms time in Sandby church as a corner plot stone in the ship's southeast corner with the lower part upwards, so only 3-4 runes were visible. The stone was taken out in 1931, but the first mention of it dates back to 1643.

Found: Kirkevej 13, 4171 Glumsø
Present location:
Kirkevej 13, 4171 Glumsø in the cemetery.

The stone is granite, and it is 110 centimetres high, 65 centimetres wide and 38 centimetres thick. The inscription was made somewhere in-between 970 and 1020.

The inscription: "Ǣskæll satti st[ēn]/st[ēna] [þ]æssi/þāsi at Tōfa [b]rōð[u]r sinn ... §B æn Krōkr(?) ..."
Translated: Áskell placed this stone (or: these stones) in memory of Tófi, his brother ... And Krókr(?) ...

The Sandby Stone number 1 is only known from Worm's drawings, as it have gone missing. It was found within the same church, and was inscribed: "... sun Sōta ... ... æft Þōrð, brōður ..." which could be: ... Sóti's son ... in memory of Þórðr, brother ...
Worm found it the same year, and it dates back to the same period. It was around 102 centimetres high, 32 centimetres wide and 32 centimetres thick.
