I am the resurrection and the life St John XI 25 (John 11:25)

In loving remembrance of Edward Hoblyn Pedler who died Sarah Pedler who died and Mary Pedler who died erected by their surviving sisters

In the bottom left-hand corner, to the left of the dedication, are the arms (or, a castle sable a bordure of the second bezantée) of Gidley (Burke, Bernard, The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, p 398. , London, Harrison & Sons) which one or more of the Pedler siblings had presumably inherited the right to use. The same arms appear on a memorial plaque in Truro Cathedral, on the east side of the stairwell between the north quire aisle and the crypt, in memory of Edward Hoblyn Pedler, and recording the bequest of £15,000 to the Cathedral by Anne Pedler, the last surviving sibling. A memorial in Liskeard church in memory of the siblings’ parents, William Pedler (surgeon and four times mayor of Liskeard) and Sarah Pedler, née Hobling, records that William Pedler’s parents were William Pedler and Hannah Pedler, née Gidley (J Polsue, A Complete Parochial History of the County of Cornwall, vol III p 136. William Lake, Truro, ).
