A tall stone with a half round top checked above decorated shoulders, hard to read:

to the memory of William,
son of William
and Rebecca BUCKLAND
of this parish,
who died Decrr the 22nd 1809
in the 23rd year of his age.
Also James and George
their Sons, who died
in their infancy.
With patience to the last he did submit,
And murmur'd not at what the Lord thought fit.
But unto God his Soul he did resign,
Leaving this world and friends behind:
Oh! may we meet again in realms above,
To sing and praise redeeming love.

Haslewood p28. Registers: unbaptised infants, sons of Thomas, 15.8.1807 and 16.1.1809.
