Memorial to William Swaine & family at Halifax Parish Church


Here lieth the body of Mr William Swaine,
of Halifax, who departed this life 27 October 1779
in the 32nd year of his age
Is it a thing so small
So easy to comply
When summoned by a sudden call
To get us up and die.
For those who humbly keep
The Faith by Christ bestowed
To die is but to fall a sleep
In the soft arms of God.
Also of Mary, the wife of the
above William Swaine, who
died on the 8th of October 1826,
aged 73 years
