From Desky Kernowek:

The Cornish for ‘to bury’ is variously spelt in the texts: ‹enclethyas›,
‹enclethyes›, ‹anclethyas›. where the ‹th› of the texts represents "dh" rather
than "th". In some forms of revived Cornish the verbal noun is on etymological grounds spelt *‹ynkleudhyas›. There is a little evidence in later texts to
support initial ‹yn›; there is none at all for the medial ‹eu›. ‘To bury’ in
Cornish is best spelt ‹encledhyas›.
