Inscriptions:
Cyrus Butler was born in Providence and early engaged in commerce with his father and brother whose remains now rest in this enclosure. Distinguished for untiring industry, a resolute will, a clear sagacity and a sound judgment and governed by an uncompromising honesty, he devoted the active years of a long life to the pursuits of trade. He accumulated a large fortune by the judicious management of which he contributed much to the commercial prosperity of his native town. By a munificent donation during his life he aided largely in founding in this city on the banks of the Seekonk River the Butler Hospital for the Insane.

The remains of Cyrus Butler together with those of the other members of his family and also with those of the children of his niece Sarah Butler Duncan previously interred in the burying ground belonging to the Beneficent Congregational Society in this city were removed and placed in this ground June 17, 1858.

Erected to the memory of Cyrus Butler as a tribute of esteem by Alexander Duncan.
