BSD80.jpg  Sandys memorial, the parents of Bishop Edwin Sandys.
(taken 16.9.2005)  
Translated by Dr J E Sandys, public orator at St John's College, Cambridge:-
"Buried beneath this tomb lie William Sanders"
"And his Consort, Margaret:"
"Happy her name, happy her name and fame;"
"He an Esquire who rejoiced in his day in labour of Princes;"
"She a Pattern to all, holy and saintly in life."
"Happy were they in their home in the equal lot of their wedlock;"
"Blest in their wealth and their faith;"
"Blest in their sires and their sons."
"Great were the pledges of favour divine they received in abundance;"
"Greatest of all was the fame won them by Edwin their son."
"Doctor was he, and Proctor, and Head"
"of a college at Cambridge;"
"Thrice as a Bishop enthroned;"
"Thrice he was head of a See."
"They that were one in their life, and their love,An their hallowed affection,"
"Resting beneath this stone wait for the life to come."
