Inscription EH2 Index Plan < Prev. Next >

A tall stone with a half round top checked above decorated shoulders, much weathered:

to the memory of
Thos Elcock BUCKLAND,
son of William and
of this parish, who died
November the 23rd 1814
in the 31st year of his age.
I was cut down in my prime,
And you my Friends I leave behind,
Prepare for Death without delay,
I suddenly was call'd away:
Death doth not always warning give,
Therefore be careful how you live;
On Christ alone your Souls rely,
That precious bleeding Sacrifice.
