Floor stone No 19 - 2070 x 1165 black marble. There are several cracks and the stone is worn, The greek inscription is not legible at all and the rest is illegible in places. The inscription has therefore  been taken from Cussans 1879-81 and corrected where the legible part indicates inaccuracy. Arms at head.

Hic Jacent spe beatę Resurrectionis

Corpora Gulielmi et Marię Anderson

Ille Primogenitus illa Vnica Filia

Edmundi et Margarettę Anderson

Di Porters in Agro Hartford Armige

Qui prematuro fato vitam cum morte commutarunt

Gulielmus nondum peracto undecimo Ętatis anno

Obiit 17th die Martii y Anno Incarnationis Dni 1673

Maria vię Septimanam in Terris morata

Vicessimo tertio Augusti die

Anno 1674, iterum in Coelum redijt

EiV  uµaV  orewn  eusebhV  estw

Via longa,

Via brevis,

Via quidem longa est dicat Mortale sed audi

Nostros preme gradis tum via brevis erit.
