Remembered Today:

"No Mother's care did him attend" etc

"No Mother's care did him attend,

Nor o'er him did a Father bend,

No Sister by to shed a tear,

No Brother his last words to hear."

I had a photo sent to me today of a gravestone (non CWGC - a family memorial), and the verse above was inscribed on the stone.

Does anybody know the origin?

A Google search found other examples, but no derivation.

Ta.

Not sure of its origins but there is a "fuller" version in dedication to a Rifleman Fred Waters:~Pursey

Try a search for "Did Him Attend..."it seems to originate from Australia
