This is the burial place of William Simonds:
William Simonds’s epitaph:
Here lies my corpse who as the man
That lovd a so in a dripping pan:
But now believe me I am dead,
Now here the pan stands at my head.
Still for sop to the last I cry’d
But could not eat and so I died.
My neighbours they perhaps may laugh
Now they do read my epitaph.
