A ledger slab of pink granite was carved in memory of Jacquine le Febvre, wife of Pierre Carey, who was buried in the Cimetiére des Soeurs, the cemetry of the Town Church in 1610.

Originally standing in the part of the cemetry taken over for the widening of the road, the memorial was brought across and can now be seen standing in the small garden adjoining the wall of the Town Church.
