Lumley c30 yards souths

Churchyard memorial. 1795. Sandstone. Tablet c.4 feet high with scrolled
shoulders and elliptical top. Well carved inscription including verse:
Yes! you are gone but who can truly tell
The silent anguish of a last fare well;

The wish, the prayer that would have kept you here.
