White marble tablet on black granite backing

An impressive memorial service was conducted by Rev. Mr. Godson in St. Luke's Church, Brownsville, on Sunday, to honor the memory of the late Private J. R. Stevens, who died in England during March, 1919. The congregation was a very large one, and included several district returned soldiers and members of the Wollongong lodge, P.A.F.S. In the course of his remarks, Mr. Godson feelingly referred to the upright life and integrity of character of the late. Pte. Stevens, who spent the whole of his life in Dapto. A beautiful marble tablet to the memory of deceased was then unveiled by Mr. Godson. The solemn strains of the Last Post were sounded by Mr. E. Simpson; and the Dead March in 'Saul' was played by Miss Mason.
