Burial plot B25
Headstone for Robert Gaunt who died 16 February 1796, aged thirty-two, after falling from his horse.
It must contain one of the longest gravestone explanations as to what happened.
I fell when riding got a bruise
Physicians skill I tried
For five months they their art did use,
But my wound it mortified,
But off just in the midst of life
Can man from death be free.
My pretty children, loving wife
Prepare to follow me.
