His afflicted family found their only consolation for his loss in the opening virtues of his son Lieutenant Colonel William Myers Baronet but of him also. It pleased the Almighty to deprive them, on the 16th May 181. He fell when leading on the British Fusileer Brigade at the Battle of Albuera in the 27th year of his age; and with him expired the last hope of his family, whose pride and affection were equally gratified by his short but brilliant career. This monument is erected by a mother, whom his death has bereft of all earthly consolation: and by a sister, who thus deprived of her guide, protector and friend awaits with anxious hope and resignation the moment of their eternal re-union. 'The Lord gave - the Lord hath taken away: Blessed be the name of the Lord'.

Lieutenant Colonel Sir William Myers Baronet
