CHURCH LAWTON C.P. LIVERPOOL ROAD WEST SJ 85 NW 7/26 Tombstone to a bullfinch c.10 yards to north of Lawton Hall School - GV II

Tombstone. 1853. Grey slate. Rectangular slate with moulded top edge. The slate reads:

On the Death of a Bullfinch That sang God Save the Queen when bidden to do so

Dear bullie thy voice which so often did charm Is silenced forever by Death's mighty arm God gave thee thy beauty; man gave thee thy song Such perfection combined to few Bullies belong Thy notes were so loyal, so sweet and as gay As any free bird that sang on its spray And all who ere heard thee thy loss will regret Thy ready obedience I ne'er can forget Then farewell my bird. I give thee this grave In return for the pleasure thou often me gave The sun will shine o'er thee, thou art free from the storm These flowers will be freshened by the tears of the morn

M P Lawton March 31 1853
