Front Inscription

In affectionate remembrance of Emily Augusta Hall (Cissie Forster)

Born 24th October 1877
Died 12th October 1899.

"Come unto Me, ye weary, and I will give you rest."

Oh, blessed voice of Jesus, which comes to hearts opprest.  

It tells of benediction, of pardon, grace, and peace ; of joy that hath no ending, of love which cannot cease.

This tablet has been erected, by a few loving friends.

J. Harry  Waverley
