Gilbert Clifton

(N). In memory of Richard Gilbert who lost his Life on the Railway Works at Clifton Moor May 9th 1846 Aged 20 years. See what a sudden change in me took place And snatch’d me from the world in haste, I had not time once more my friends to see But left them all to weep & mourn for me, Oh may this admonition teach us all How frail is man, how unforeseen his fall. This Stone was Erected by his Affectionate Brother George Gilbert.
