Ashworth Shap

(E). In affectionate remembrance of Robert Noble Wilkinson of Sleddale aged 15 years. and George Ashworth of Manchester aged 18 years. who were drowned whilst bathing in Lake Haweswater, July 10th, 1874. A sudden change ; we in a moment fell, We had not time to bid our friends farewell, It is nothing strange, death happens unto all, It was our lot that day ; tomorrow you may fall.
