A tall stone with sinuous top, a central round immediately flanked by two slightly smaller, with rounds on each shoulder above further waves down the sides:

In memory of
Mary, Eldest Daughter of
John and Mary GUDE,
Second Wife of John SPARKS
of this Parish, who departed this
life (with a cancer in the
breast) February the 24th 1817,
aged 54 years.
With patience to the last she did submit,
And murmur'd not at what the Lord thought fit
But unto God her Soul she did resign,
Leaving this World and Friends behind;
Oh! may we meet again in realms above,
To sing and praise Redeeming Love.
