Inscription: Sacred to the memory of Benjamin GOMPERTZ Esq FRS and FRAS who departed this life on the 30th day of Tamuz 56 14th day of July in the 87th year of his age.
Here lies entombed the earthly remains of an excellent, noble-minded man who departed this life in old age and full of years. Benjamin the son of Solomon Gompertz. The science of physic was the eagle on which he soared to the distant regions of the Heaven and which bore him to the remote corners of the earth. Mathematics he made the bridge across the deep sea of knowledge. Even during his old age the pen of the writer was in his hand shedding light upon his fellow men. In the eighty-seventh year of his age he was gathered to his fathers.
