In loving memory of our dear son L/Cpl Frank Tanner, Wiltshire Regiment, who was killed in action at the battle of the Somme October 18th 1916.

Somewhere in France our loved one is sleeping,
While angels bright are watching near;
Still at home our hearts are aching,
For we have lost a dear son.

All his sufferings now are ended,
His wounded body is at rest,
His soul from every ill defended,
Reposes at his Saviours breast.

Deeply mourned by his Mother, Father, Brothers and Sisters.
10 The Gardens, Ladd’s Lane, Chippenham.
