The Warden Memorial
The Warden Memorial
The inscription panel of this Gothic monument is now broken, but it commemorated Peter Warden, his only sister Isabella, and other relatives.

The memorial is signed "R Wood". Robert Wood had a sculptors' office near the cemetery gate.

The carved representation of an open book bears the following text. Left: "Man cometh forth as a flower and is cut down. If a man die shall he live again". Right: "Christ is risen. All that are in the graves shall hear His voice and come forth". Ribbon: "Prepare to meet thy God".

On the base is the following verse:

"Art thou prepared, for die thou must
And mingle with thy parent dust.
Yet, Ah, forget not thou must rise,
When flames envelop earth and skies,
and then, according to thy doom,
heaven or hell shall be thy home."
