Detail of the photo above, showing inscription.
This was originally a memorial to Sir Edward's wife. She died in Ireland, and he expected to return to England. It is full of detailed dates.
Spaces were left at the bottom to note the date when Sir Edward returned to England. But of course he died in Ireland, and was buried here, and that was written above this, and the spaces were never filled in.
