The shield is mounted high up in a dark corner of the church.
It took many attempts get a photograph.
The result is not the quality I would like, but is the best that can be achieved in the circumstaces.
For the same reason I am not a hundred percent sure about the accuracy of the transcription,
particularly about the last name: HEBDERN?
