In loving memory of
the beloved husband of Isabella Williams
who was severely gassed when on active service
died December 2nd 1918

When alone in my sorrow the bitter tears flow
There stealeth sweet dreams of a short time ago
Unknown to the world he stands by my side
and whispers dear wife death cannot divide
