My stab at it

Thomas Greenwood
of ????????
who died April 21st 1878, Aged ?? years
Also of Sarah A. Relict of the above
who died March ?? 18?(8)3
Aged 7? (9) years
Also of ??????   (Jane, Daughter of above)
who died ????? (Sepr) ????
Aged ??  years

()  is a guess

Have you tried to contact the owner of the photo to ask if they could take a closer look at the original photo?

Sorry about the icons I haven't put them in they have appeared as I've used more than one ?

Good Luck!

Thanks.  Greenwood is such a common name in that area, and the name Sarah doesn't connect with my family, so I think chances are it isn't my great great grandfather.  It might be the same man whose advertisements selling farm machinery are frequent in the local newspapers of the time, and even then probably not.
