Inscription detail

 

These monument are next to William Budd’s grave.  Although Mr King’s inscription is on the base of the large cross, he actually  resides in the family grave to its left with the smaller cross.  This is also the burial place Captain Matthew Liddon, and Arctic explorer who shared a prize for discovering the North West passage.
