"A handsome memorial has been placed in Broadclyst churchyard to the memory of the late Mr Samuel Mardon. It takes the form of a massive cross of unpolished Dartmoor granite, the letters of the inscription being sunk into the stone in blackened lead.
The inscription is as follows:
IN LOVING MEMORY OF SAMUEL MARDON
BORN 23 JULY 1834. AT REST 20 MARCH 1900.
MASTER OF GEORGE III JUBILEE SCHOOLS, BROADCLYST
1857 - 1894.
"MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE"
The above is inserted on the three steps of the pedestal on the side of which there is also an inscription setting forth the death of Mr. Mardon's first wife, Elizabeth Ann Stocker Mardon who died 10 January 1881. The name of the sculptor is not given but is believed to be the handiwork of a former pupil of the Jubilee Schools."
