In memory of the great and good
Sir Henry Montgomery Lawrence K.C.B.
Christian statesman, philanthropist and soldier
Who in the Punjab, Rajputana and Oudh
Taught how kindly subject races should be ruled
Who first in India, founded hill asylums for British soldiers children
and who fell in the memorable defence of Lucknow
4th July 1857
Beloved and mourned by natives and Europeans

As the monument he would have most desired
the community of Calcutta and Bengal,
Joined with that of Upper India in founding
a "Henry Lawrence Memorial Asylum for Soldiers" Children"
at Murree, in the hills of the Pubjab;
They also erect this tablet in the Cathedral
To keep among them his memory and example.
