Rushden Echo, 28th June 1918
MORRIS – In loving memory of Corpl. John Samuel Morris (Northants Regiment) who died in France of wounds received in the service of his country on June 30th, 1917.
From his loving Mother, Widow, Sisters and Brothers.
“There’s a lonely grave in France
Where a brave young hero sleeps,
There’s a cottage home in England
Where a mother often weeps.
I think of you, my dear one,
Though no eye may see me weep,
But deep within my heart
Your fond memory I shall keep.
Could we have raised his dying head
And heard his last farewell,
It would not have been so hard to part
From one we loved so well.”
