Inscription

This monument is erected in memory of William Whiteley of Westbourne Grove on Queens Road in the County of London, Esquire, by whose munificent bequest this park was purchased and these cottage homes were built for the comfort of old age and as an encouragement to others to do likewise.
Blessed be the man that provideth for the sick and needy. XLI

The quotation is from Psalm 41.1.
