You find the most interesting things.
Lisl: This was on a church wall where presumably it had been since the 18th Century. It is Cornish slate and it has weathered very well

Mostly understandable Lisl, but some words loek ay lettle beet ftrange.
Lisl: Nit too much of a problem for your deciphering mind, Chad

I get the feeling she died young and didn't have much of a life
Lisl: Just 23, Chris

Je n'ai pas compris le texte ... mon anglais n'est pas bon
Lisl: Il s'agit des vertus d'une jeune fille de 23 ans décédée au 18ème siècle
Unusual one isn't it?
Lisl: Yes, quite special, and in remarkable condition for its age, Bill

Chris might be right - 23 years old - "Youth' blossom's nept by pain oppressed" - I need some time to decipher and translate this epitaph. Very interesting.
Lisl: For "nept" read "nipped", Philine; and any other help I can give you?

I got the impression she died young, as a consequence of being treated very badly by some one .

A very interesting image, Lisl.
Lisl: Could well be, Ray - life could be hard for women in those days
She is surrounded by angels now.
Lisl: She is - aren't they appealingly naive?
A great find but quite difficult to decode.
Lisl: Yes - it takes some doing, Brian
Lisl: A little word of art, Tom
Very difficult for me to understand - but I think I've got it! Quite unusual, I'd say.
The stone and text are lovely.
