I am interested in an English translation of the inscription, part of which I know already. It's the gravestone of my 5th-great-grandmother Dina Aub née Kohn/Katz whose birth family later adopted the name Engländer. The family name Aub after the given name of her husband, Abraham, is hidden by the gravestone number 0827, and the T-N-Tz-B-H to the left is very faint.
