An Accident at Ware Mill recorded on a tombstone at Amell

A typical 18th century gravestone

Mourn not for me my wife and children dear
I am not dead but slumber here
It was by a fatal Jam at Ware Mill I fell Alas
I never spoke nor did my secrets reveal.

An epitaph from Amwell recorded in Cream of Curiosity
