Plaque

St Mary Rotherhithe gate piers - south

Erection date: /10/1886

Inscription

{On the white stone on the pier to the left of the opening:}
The necessary repairs to the walls, railings and gates of the churchyard burial ground were executed 1886.

{On the white stone on the pier to the right of the opening:}
Churchwardens - E. Rumney Smith, Francis T. Talbot
Overseers – Edwin Willoughby, Frederick T. Baker, John D. Hawkins, William Predam
October 1886

Given the state of the inscription we hope you are impressed with our ability to decipher it. We have to own that it is practically illegible and we can only read it because the wording is identical to that on the gate piers to the north. The only difference being that to the north it is all on one stone but here the list of names is on the right hand stone which is actually in such good condition we wonder if it is a reproduction.
