Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of William and Mary HAY, Isabella Street, Hillgrove, New South Wales

HAY.—In sad and loving memory of Private C. N. E. Hay, Hillgrove, N.S.W. who died of wounds received in France on 28th April, 1917. Inserted by his sorrowing friend, Jose
Degney.

HAY.—In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Pte. Clarence Hay, who died of wounds on 29th April, 1917.
None knew him, but to love him,
None spoke his name but in praise—
So young, so good, so bright, so brave,
He fought and won a heroe's grave.
[Inserted by his loving mother, brother and sisters].


HAY.—In loving memory of our dear grandson, Pte. Clarence Hay, who nobly gave his life for the Empire. 
Dear is the grave whore Clarence is laid,
Sweet is the memory that never shall fade, 
Flowers may wither, eyes fall to see,
If others forget, never shall we.
[Inserted by his grandfather and
grandmother, Mr. and Mrs. T. Dillon].
