John Stott’s ashes have now been buried at a village in Wales. He requested that his gravestone be inscribed with the words:
Buried here are the ashes of JOHN R. W. STOTT 1921 – 2011 Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London 1950-1975 Rector Emeritus 1975-2011 Who resolved Both as the ground of his salvation And as the subject of his ministry To know nothing except JESUS CHRIST And him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ grave, also in Wales, is inscribed similarly:
In Loving Memory of D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The beloved Doctor, 1899 – 1981. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Christ, and him crucified.
