Sandstone tablet approx 4 ft high with scrolled pedimented top carved with angel,
symbols of eternity and death. Moulded edges. Inscribed:

More glorious shall she later rise
Tho' not more innocent.
When the Archangel's trump shall blow
And souls to bodies join
Thousands will wish their lives below
