22/118 Monument to Catherine
Lumley c30 yards souths
west of Church of St.Mary

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;
Forever gone, ah! no, those tears refrain;
Beyond the grave we still may meet again:
Forgive, blest shade, this tributary tear,
The wish, the prayer that would have kept you here.
