Dedicated to: 
Inscription: 

In this spot are immurred the ashes of Dr Sybil Lonie Lewis a faithful and loving member of this congregation of Christ's church who died March 10th 1918 after working in Serbia on the start of the Scottish Women's Hospital 1915,6,7 and of the Serbian Relief Fund 1917. Her experiences in the campaign and as a prisoner of war so undermined her health that she died shortly after her return home. In recognition of her services, HM the King of Serbia conferred on her the order of Saint Sava. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
