The first death is recorded 1844 and the design would suggest that the memorial dates from very soon after that. The Rev. John Thomas Casberd was Vicar of Penmark 1799-1843 (see tablet in church).
Constructed of Portland limestone ashlar. Neo-classical sarcophagus on a moulded base, panelled sides, with each corner carrying a reversed torch in relief, swept out to a corniced top which carries a draped urn.
Included for its special design quality and for its group value within the churchyard of the Church of St Mary.
