Inscription

{Plaque on the monument's plinth:}
Erected by public subscription in memory of Henry Shrubsole Esq JP, three times elected mayor of this borough in 1877, 1878 and 1879, who died suddenly in the third year of his office whilst presiding on an occasion of public charity, 18th January 1880.
The Honourable Counsellor St. Mark XV 43.
Dedicated to public use by H.R.H. The Duke of Cambridge K.G. 1st May 1882.

The King James Bible, Mark XV 43, describes Joseph of Arimathea as "an honourable counsellor". There must be a reason why a royal agreed to unveil this memorial, to a mere local politician.
