The plaque below the grave marker of Mary Sidney and Henry Herbert and their sons, is dedicated to Mary and reads:

"Underneaththis sable herse, Lies the subject of all verse: Sidney's sister, Pembroke's mother: Death, ere thou hast slain another, Fair and learn'd and good as she.  Time shall throw a dart at thee."
