Octavia & Justiana Pelly
Thanks for bringing the problems with these memorials to my attention. I must have been asleep or in a big rush when I posted them. It's fortunate I still have the original photo since I normally delete them after they've been posted. I entered the essential information into Find A Grave, including an additional memorial for their infant child, but here's the full transcription of the headstone:

IN MEMORY OF
OCTAVIUS PELLY;
RETIRED CAPTAIN 7th MADRAS CAVALRY,
LATE COLONEL COMMANDING
DUKE of EDINBURGH'S OWN MILITIA ARTILLERY,
AND JUSTICE OF THE PEACE
FOR THE COUNTY OF MIDLOTHIAN,
BORN 7 MAY 1823, DIED 30 APRIL 1904.
"I SHALL BE SATISFIED WHEN I AWAKE WITH
THY LIKELNESS" PS XVII 15.

ALSO OF
JUSTIANA
WIFE OF THE ABOVE NAMED OCTAVIUS PELLY,
BORN 19 OCT. 1825; DIED 18 MAY 1904.

ALSO OF
INA; INFANT DAUGHTER OF THE ABOVE
OCTAVIA AND JUSTIANA PELLY;
BORN IN INDIA 29 SEP. 1847,
WHO SURVIVED HER BIRTH ONLY 10 DAYS.

Please let me know if you're related to these people and if you'd like me to transfer management of their memorials to you.

Regards,
-Peter
