Inscription from old record - it needs a quiet hour! (7)


I believe the answer is:


'inscription' is the definition.
(epitaph is a kind of inscription)

'old record it needs a quiet hour' is the wordplay.
'old record' becomes 'ep'.
'needs' says to put letters next to each other.
'a quiet' becomes 'ap' (I've seen this in other clues**).
'hour' becomes 'h'.

'from' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for epitaph that I've seen before include "Grave inscription" , "message celebrating memories?" , "Tombstone inscription" , "Words written on a gravestone" , "Words carved on a gravestone" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
