Stanley Unwin's epitaph


This is from Wikipedia. I do hope it is true:
Stanley Unwin died in 2002 in Daventry, England. He is buried in the churchyard at Long Buckby, Northamptonshire with his wife, who pre-deceased him. Their gravestone has the epitaph, "Reunitey in the heavenly-bode - Deep Joy".

Lovely! and it seems it is true: -

Letter in the Daily Telegraph
"Sir - When my father, Stanley Unwin, joined our mother in the churchyard at Long Buckby, my siblings and I pondered long on the wording and eventually decided on: "Reunitey in the heavenly-bode - Deep Joy."

Marion Gilbert, Daventry, Northamptonshire"

My apologies, your Lordship - our schooling in the Home concentrated more on chimney-cleaning than on such technical skills.
