Inscription

The translation comes from Horsfall Turner's Yorkshire Anthology


Died 10th March AD 1623
John Favour LL MD
Most skilful and vigilant minister of this parish
   
In their souls and bodies sick, the murmur swells on every side
Of the throng bereft and smitten, when alas! it's Favour died.
Lo the Pastor, the Physician, and the Jurist lowly lies;
Go thou now who would be healed, follow Favour to the skies
