Robert Wreford

Memorial Number: 14*

A memorial recording of this headstone was taken in February 2017.  Portions of the incised inscription were clear but worn, and other areas were too weathered to be legible.  The inscription that was fully distinguishable read:  

SACRED
TO THE MEMORY OF
ROBERT WREFORD LATE OF ___ CITY.
