Notes

Parents - Joseph and Fanny Swanborough, Chippenham

In ever loving memory of my dear husband, Pte William Arthur Swanborough, who was killed in action on November 7th 1917 in Egypt aged 24.

Fondly I loved him, he is so dear to me still.
But in grief I must bend to Godís holy will,
My sorrow is great and my loss hard to bear,
But angels will guard my loved one with care.

When alone in my sorrow and bitter tears flow,
There stealeth a dream of the sweet long ago,
And unknown to the world he stands by my side
And whispers "My dear one, donít fret, death cannot divide".

Fondly remembered by his sorrowing wife Nell.
17 Sladesbrook, Bradford on Avon
