The inscription reads:

Sacred / to the memory of / Sarah,
wife of / Thomas RIGBY,
who departed this life
July the 6th 1833 / aged LXX years.
Resigned to God, we here to earth commend
A tender Mother, and a constant friend;
Blest are the Children who such Mothers have
As smile in death, and triumph o'er the grave.
