Mary Dring (Travell). The inscription reads 'Sacred to the memory of Mary, wife of Oliver Dring, who departed this life the 29 of April 1812 in the 31 year of her life'.

Oliver Dring 'Sacred to the memory of Oliver Dring who died June 28 1832 age 63 years . Old Lord turn not thy face away, where mercy doth abound. Mercy, good Lord. Mercy I ask to heal my deadly wound".
Below that I thought it read:
'Also to the memory of Elizabeth his last wife who died January 9 1851 aged 59.

John DRING, her son died 23 July 1928 Age 85 years buried Baptist Chapel, Warboys

Monumental Inscription
In affectionate rememberance of John Dring who departed this life July 23 1928 aged 85 years

As you will see, the next one is for an Edward, and is the next number, and born about 1812. However, in the same grave was an Elizabeth, born about 1838. No relationship given. Was this Edward the husband of Mary HOWARD who married again? If so, when and where? I do not have another Edward with birth year as 1812. However, for the moment I have entered them as another couple.

No.124B
As they are the next number, and there is the name "Louisa" I am assuming that these two are children of Frederick John and Louisa. They need to be added.

No.333
Not too sure about this one as the age of John does not fit. However, I only have one Ada, and her age fits, and she was married to a John, so I am assuming that the age at death for John was either copied wrongly in the first place, or misread from the transcript in the Record Office...unless someone has the correct information.

John DRING born 1872 son of Thomas DRING and Jane UNKNOWN. died 14 July 1963 Age 69 (should be 89) years

I also have the following Monumental Inscriptions

No.80
In Loving Remembrance of William Dring who died June 28 1888 in the 66th year of his age.

No.94
In Loving Memory of Elizabeth Dring who departed this life Jan 1 1901 aged 82 years

No.103
In Loving Memory of Elizabeth Dring who departed this life May 27 1933 aged 89 years.

There is the William born Well Fen Cambridge who married a Hannah. There is also one who was living in High Street, Warboys in 1841

As far as the Elizabeths go, I can find no Elizabeth DRING to fit, so assume they are wives. There is an Elizabeth, wife of Edward (who was born Well Fen Cambridge, but who, at present, has no parents). Anyone got any ideas about these three?

I have found it difficult to account for the following DRINGS for whom I inherited Memorial cards but can't find them on the descendants lists. The retention of these meant that my people held them as special but the only certain fact on each is the date of death:
William Dring d. June 28th,1888 in his 66th year presuming a year of birth abt 1826 Interred Warboys Chapel Yard July 2nd 1888
Oliver Dring d. February 7th 1900 in his 91st year presuming a year of birth abt 1809 Interred Warboys Chapel Yard Feb.12th 1900
Elizabeth Dring d.January 1st 1901 aged 83 years presuming a year of birth abt 1816 Place of internment not stated
Jesse Dring d.July 1st 1950 aged 83 years presuming a year of birth abt 1867 Service Zion Chapel, Chatteris Internment in the Parochial Cemetery.
