INMAN – January 16th, died of pneumonia in hospital at Salonica, aged 36 years, Sapper J. Inman, R.E.., dearly loved husband of Ann Inman, Main Street, Embsay.

We prayed for his safe returning,
We longed to clasp his hand;
But God has postponed the meeting
Till we meet in the better land.

INMAN – In loving remembrance of my dear husband, Sapper John Inman, R.E., who died of pneumonia in hospital at Salonika, January 16th, 1919.

May the heavenly winds blow softly
O’er that sweet and hallowed spot;
Though the sea divides his grave from me
He will never be forgot.
I often sit and think of him,
And wonder how he died;
But oh! it is so hard to think
I was not by his side.

“Not his wish, nor mine, but Thine, O Lord.”

Sadly missed by his loving Wife, Main Street, Embsay.

Dear brother, in our hearts you still have a place,
Our home is now lonely without your dear face;
We think of you always, and oft breathe your name,
We cannot forget, love will always remain.

From his loving brother, Harry and Sarah, Sunny Bank, Embsay.

Though seas divide the sacred spot
Where our dear one is laid;
Beautiful memories are left behind
That will never, never fade.

Too far away your grave to see,
But not too far to think of thee.
