Epitaph



The epitaph for Elizabeth Nelson

A plain tablet in the family pew in the Holdsworth Chapel


BENEATH THIS PEW ARE DEPOSITED THE MORTAL REMAINS OF
ELIZABETH, WIFE OF LEWIS ALEXANDER, OF HOPWOOD
HALL, HALIFAX, ESQURE, WHO DIED 18TH JANUY, 1832,
AGED 61 YEARS.
   
IN PIOUS COMMEMORATION OF A
CONJUGAL LOVE AND MATERNAL TENDERNESS, WHICH TIME
SERVED BUT TO STRENGTHEN AND DEATH ONLY COULD
IMPAIR, AND WITH THE CHRISTIAN HOPE OF BEING AGAIN
UNITED, WHERE ALL TEARS WILL BE WIPED AWAY,
AND WHERE NO SECOND SEPARATION CAN BE KNOWN,
THIS TABLET IS INSCRIBED BY HER
AFFLICTED HUSBAND AND CHILDREN
