The stone had had the original plaque removed and a replacement concreted in on the ground in front of the headstone. It read:

To the memory of G. W. Hayward, Gold Medallist of the Royal Geographical Society of London, who was cruelly murdered at Darkot July 18, 1870, on his journey to explore the Pamir Steppe. This monument is erected to a gallant officer and accomplished traveller of The Royal Geographical Society of London
