The Green Monumental Plaque in All Saints Church, Skipsea


The monumental plaque (see also Photo)

In Memory of
GEORGE GREEN Esq'r of SOUTH SKIRLAUGH,
who died September 17th: 1831,
Aged 42 Years.
Ye guardian angels who surround the just,
Preserve each atom of this silent dust;
Here unmolested may it sweetly sleep,
While I surviving only live to weep;
To weep inglorious thought' I'll rather stay
To wait and long for that approaching day,
When our remains shall in one grave unite,
And spirits greet with infinite delight.
