Here lyeth Richard Marshall, whom in his liking age,
Almighty god lyst call to his mercy and grace,
The vj vicar of this church of good ffame, without rage,
In whose tyme this chancell and vestry bildite was.
The yere of our lord M CCCCC V death did him embrace,
Whose body the second day of February was beried in this place.
Almighty God of thyne infinit pete
Of Sir Rychard Marshall soule have mercy.
Et sine fine tui da Deitate frui. Amen
