A Great Shock to the Family

Ellesmere Port (Overpool) Cemetery

The sentiment expressed on the gravestone of Joseph G Williams indicates how much of a shock it must have been for the family to hear of the death of their son. It taught me a new word -Strenth - an alternative spelling of strength.

In Health & Strenth
He left his home
Not thinking Death so near
The call was short
The Shock severe
To part with one
We love so dear
