      Translated the inscription on the memorial reads:-

      Sacred to the Memory
      Death, hateful to many but welcome to her, has
      returned Sara, a little grieved that her life
      has come to an end, to her Father's house. Wept
      for by her friends, she has willingly left this
      pledge as a consolation for them: a white memorial
      plaque newly shining with a brightness given from
      heaven. Her loving husband gives this memorial
      made of ever-enduring marble so that posterity may
      know that she shone among men while she lived with God.
      William Willaston dedicates this to Sara Willaston
      a most devoted mother and very dear wife who was
      joyfully taken from this calamitous life to glory.
      (I.M.P.) To the everlasting memory.
      Died on Feby 6th, 1622 in her 31st year
