Sacred to the memory
The Reverend Johnathon Lovett Darby
For many years incumbent of the Parish of Acton
Who died March (??) 1858
Aged 58 years
He was remarkable for his truthfulness and simplicity of his character,
for his humility and great kind heartedness, qualities which gained for him the affectionate regard of his parishioners to whom he was sincerely attached for 24 years. He lived among them as their pastor, and was always found ready to sympathise with those who were in sorrow, to encourage and assist those who were disheartened or in distress. Death came upon him suddenly but it brought no terror in its train for his trust was in the merit of his Saviour, and so he feared no evil but calmly and with gentle thoughts for all he loved on earth laid himself down to rest.
This monument is erected to his memory by his wife
Ann Catherine Derby

"Thou has formed us for thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are disquieted within us until we find our rest in thee."
