The visible inscription reads: IN LOVING MEMORY OF/ SARAH ANN, THE BELOVED WIFE OF/ JAMES THOMAS NORTH,/ WHO ENTERED INTO REST/ MARCH 15TH 1924/ AGED 69 YEARS/ ROCK OF AGES CLEFT FOR ME According to the Peterborough & District Family History Society, in the 1990s the headstone also bore the inscription: "In ever loving memory of our dear son Pte Percy North, 1st Trench Mortar Battery, died of wounds in France aged 21 years 191?". (Since the FHS recorded the inscription in the 1990s, the headstone has fallen backwards and is laying flat. The inscription re Percy is believed to be on the back of the stone, so is now hidden from view).
