In the Cathedral Church of Gloucester, against the south wall of the Lady's Chapel is a stone with an inscription:
This stone belongeth unto William Hoar; he died Feb. 1654, aged 76.
O mortal Man that lives by Breath,
Consider thou must come to death;
And after Death all must appear,
Before God's Judgment Seat both far and near;
To give Account for what they've done,
Be sure of this there's none can shun,
Then whilst thou livest cry and call,
To Christ thy Saviour to pardon all;
Lest after Death it be too late,
To enter in at Peter's Gate.
