Saxtead Suffolk headstone!

Saxtead Suffolk headstone!

I found this headstone whilst doing other research and was drawn as always by the World War 1 name George Mantle DAVY who was killed in action on 15th March 1917 and then noticed that his father Thomas had died aged 75 on 4th December 1916 so Catherine had lost her husband and son within four months – so sad. Catherine lived to 1937 and died aged 89 on 17th July 1937.

The inscription says:

If we could have clasped his dying hand and heard his last farewell, it would not have been so hard to part, with one we loved so well.
