The Cathedral, Salisbury (Four Saints)

Recent Photograph of The Cathedral (Four Saints) (Salisbury)

I cannot read the inscriptions accompanying these statues from the photograph, so I don't know who the saints are, but as a guess, from left to right are St Patrick (because of the harp, though the name on the statue appears to begin with 'A'), St Christopher (as appears to be in the inscription), St Francis of Assisi, and elsewhere online it has been suggested that the one on the right is St Nicholas.

No doubt someone better acquainted with the symbolism associated with the saints could enlighten me!
