The inscription reads : 'In loving memory of GEORGINA HOGARTH, "AUNTY", Sister-In-Law of Charles Dickens.' She was the younger sister of Dickens's wife Kate and, in spite of the breakdown of the marriage, remained in his household until his death. The novelist's will stipulated : "I give to my dear sister-in-law Georgina Hogarth the sum of £8,000 free from legacy duty ; all my personal jewellery and all the little familiar objects from my writing-table and my room, and all my private papers whatsoever and wheresoever, and I leave her my grateful blessing as the best and truest friend man ever had."
