From the photograph above, of the main Cochrane Grave, it is not possible to read any inscription on the large central stone. However, Richard Crawley recorded the inscriptions in 2001. The main stone was erected to the memory of Emma Warren, John Cochrane's first wife; followed by John Cochrane and finally his second wife Martha Little.

The plot also contains four small crosses to children, two on each side; the back two for the infants of John Cochrane's first wife Emma, the front two for children of his second wife Martha. A close up photo of these crosses can be downloaded by clicking on the picture above, from which it is just possible to make out the inscriptions on the crosses as shown below.

Although slightly illegible, these inscriptions should evidently be:

Above is the grave of Mary Elizabeth Robina Cochrane with her husband Harry Eastland Redman. Below is a close-up view of the inscription, which reads:
Sacred to the memory of Harry Eastland Redman, born 9th Feb 1880, died 3rd Jan 1950. Also his wife Mary Elizabeth Robina (Cochrane), born 15th Oct 1884, died 4th Jan 1957.
