NEWSHOLME – In loving memory of Private Stephen Thomas Newsholme, 7th Leicester Regiment, who was killed in France, 22nd March, 1918.

In an unknown grave in France,
There a brave young hero sleeps;
There’s a cottage home in England
Where his dear ones sit and weep.
May the heavenly winds blow softly
O’er that sweet and hallowed spot,
Though the sea divides his grave from us,
He will never be forgot.

From Father, Mother, Sisters and Brother, Cherry Tree Cottage, Eastby.

18 March 1921
