Memorial to Robert Cawdron, Great Hale church
White alabaster monument set into the wall with free-standing, kneeling figures in two tiers. The architectural monument is divided horizontally into two compartments and topped by a scrolled broken pediment and a central achievement standing on a moulded architrave. One scroll (right) is broken.

In the upper compartment the free-standing figures of Robert Cawdron and his first wife kneel at a table covered by a fringed cloth, on which is a double sided, decorated reading desk with a book on each side. Very worn. He is bare headed and wearing a cloak. She is wearing a headdress and a dress.
In the lower tier, also kneeling at a table and desk, are his two subsequent wives, similarly dressed. Behind the desk is a mask flanked by 2 shields.
He died in 1665 aged 56, being 3 times married. Firstly to Katherine Needham, secondly to Susanna Fauckenbridge, widow of Richard Gamble, and lastly Elizabeth Sansome, widow of John Woods, who erected the monument in 1668.

Virtus post funera Nil desperandum Christo ducae auspice Christo.
Translated as: Courage after death. No despairing in Christ the Lord we-trust
