William Moakes, d 1919; Thomas Moakes, d 1941.

Interested Parties,

Whilst searching in a grave yard I found the following inscription on a memorial:

"In affectionate rememberance of

William Moakes

who died December ... 1919 aged sixty seven years

Thy will be done

In loving memory of my dear husband

Thomas Moakes

Died April 6 1941 aged fifty eight

A beautiful memory"

(The exact format of the inscription may differ from my transcfiption - it was taken down on a mobile phone.)

It was of interest to me as one of my ancestors was a Moakes. I hope it is useful to you. The memorial can be found at St Thomas's Church in Somercotes, Derbyshire. It is used as a paving slab in an abandoned corner of the yard. I believe has been moved and that the remains of the Moakes it concerns are located a short distance away under a school playing field.
