'On the centenary of Trafalgar, the four surviving sons of Captain W.H. Brand who is buried here, have placed this stone to record that as Midshipman of H.M.S. Revenge he was one of those who in the momentous Battle of 21 Oct 1805 so amply satisfied their country that they had done their duty. Through ten years of almost ceaseless warfare following Nelson's victory, Captain Brand bore a gallant part in many dangerous engagements and enterprises distinguishing himself by devotion to duty, daring & seamanship, worthy of England's Naval Traditions. In the period of his country's great struggle Captain Brand's Father, himself formerly in the Navy, gave four other sons to Her Service, one to the Military, 3 to Naval forces of the latter Lieutenant George Rowley Brand lost his life in action in 1806 under circumstances publicly recognised as of heroic gallantry going down on H.M.S. Unique, which he commanded with colours flying and himself covered with twenty seven severe wounds'
