And now she sees his blessed face,
And stands before the Lamb.

LOWDEN

Immediately adjacent to the Robert & Susannah Wawn grave,is a 'Lowden' grave.

For the time being I am assuming that this is family of Susannah Wawn (note this assumption is unproven).
It's a very large coincidence that Wawns and Lowdens are next to each other.
