'SACRED To the Memory of Lieut. Philip Bromfield late of his Majesty's Ship St Fiorenzo: who after a liberal Education at Westminster School, entered at an early Age into the Naval Service of his Country, Under his brave and excellent Commander Sir Harry Burrard Neale Bart. who was likewise his patron and his Friend. This Youth in a few Years had serv'd with Honour in Ships of every description from a Sloop to a first rate Man of War. In every Station he gain'd the respect of his Superiors and the Esteem of his Equals, being modest, brave, and diligent, and so devoted to his Profession that had it pleas'd the Almighty to have given him greater length of Days, he would probably have been an Ornament to the Character of a BRITISH NAVAL OFFICER. But - having exerted himself beyond his Strength he died at Plymouth on the 24 day of Novr. 1795: having just enter'd his 19th Year regretted by his brother officers and sorely lamented by his friends. Yea speedily was he taken away Lest that Wickedness might alter his Understanding, or Deceit beguile his Soul. Wisdom Chap 4 VII.'
