The inscription is hard to read due to a covering of lichen. It says: Erected by Margaret Keith in memory of her husband David Smith who died 16th July 1922 aged 85 years. Also their son Hugh Smith who died 13 March 1886 aged 10 months. Also their son Anthony Smith who died 1901 aged 26 years. Also their grandson William Smith killed in action 21st April 1917 aged 26 years.

The Wigtownshire Free Press, 14 June 1917 reported: Mr & Mrs Smith, March Farm Row, Whauphill, have been officially informed that their grandson, Pte William Smith, Royal Scots, was killed in action on 22nd April. He enlisted in March last year, and went to the front in December. Prior to joining he was employed in Bladnoch Creamery, and was 26 years of age.
