The green plaque in front of the house with the bush in front of its black door (not the plaque that can be seen in the photo) reads:

'Mary Hadfield, formerly Cooper, lived here with her two sons, Edward and Jonathan, her new husband Alexander Hadfield, and an employed hand, George Viccars.

George Viccars, the first plague victim, died on the 7th September 1665.
Edward Cooper, aged 4, died on the 22nd September 1665.
Jonathan Cooper, aged 12, died on the 2nd October 1665.
Alexander Hadfield died on the 3rd August 1666.
Mary alone survived but lost 19 relatives.'
