    Monument to Thomas Kynaston Selwyn in the chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge
    Translation:-

    In memory of Thomas Kynaston Selwyn, B.A., a pupil at Eton and then a Scholar of this College. He was called from this world, by a death less untimely for him than for his family, on 4th July 1834 at the age of twenty-one.

    His lofty intelligence and love of literature were complemented by a chaste life, a modest mind and an unusual sense of propriety.

    The College granted a space for his name to be commemorated, and his loving parents and brothers saw to the erection of this marble inscription as a memorial to his piety.

    His remains are buried in Chester Cathedral.

    He will rise again.
    [Carved by] Tomson & Son, Cambridge
