Church of St.

Headstone, 1805. Sandstone. Relief carving of anchor, arrow and scythe within

Sacred to the Memory
of Robert Redford of North Blyth
taken to the Mercy of God
being drowned (with three other Pilots)
while employed in the duty of his Calling
on the 14th day of January 1805
Aged 36 years
He left a widow and seven small children
to bewail his loss.
Weep for yourselves, for me lament no more
I'm safely landed on a peaceful shore
My Home's in Him whose word proclaimeth this
I am the Way to everlasting Bliss.

For two of the other pilots,see Hedley headstone at Bedlington and Watts
