Inscription:
In memory of
The Revd. Josiah Bridge A.M.
The amiable, faithful, pious,
Much beloved, & greatly lamented
Pastor
Of the church and congregation
In East Sudbury;
Who departed this life June 20th 1801:
In the 62d year of his age, and 40th of
His ministry.

"Beneath these honors of the grave
True worth in humble ruin lies.
Sinners with zeal, he fought to save,
And from the ruin, hop'd to rise.
Preserve, O earth, the precious dust;
Thou monument, instruction give;
At last resign your sacred trust,
Prepar'd in realms of bliss to live.
