    Inscribed:
    'Daniel Mears is my Name
    England is my Nation.
    Hempnall Is my Dwelling Place
    And Christ is My Salvation.
    When I Be dead and in My Grave
    My Bones Will Soon Be Rotten.
    When This you See Remember Me
    When I be Quit forgotten'.

    Daniel could never have known that 230 years later, he would indeed be remembered - and his handwritten poem visible to the whole world.
