Gravestone in Colwick churchyard
Gravestone in Colwick churchyard
This is one of a number of well-preserved slate gravestones. The inscription reads as follows:

IN MEMORY OF
ISAAC BEARDSMORE,
WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE,
JUNE 17TH 1854,
AGED 37 YEARS.

Pause gentle reader, ere you tread
The precincts of this sacred bed,
And firmly press upon your mind
The frailty of all human kind.
In manhood’s prime and bloom of life,
Beloved by children, friends, and wife,
Death, who doth no distiction know,
In one short week hath laid him low

Note the misspelling in the penultimate line. The letter 'n' has been added in superscript, although this is not legible at this size of image.
