Chest Tomb to Dan Blake, St Dunstan's


Chest tomb to Daniel Blake d.1796. Portland stone. Angle pilasters enriched with vermiculated quoins. The inscription, on the south side, includes a quotation from the Book of Job: 'O that Thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that Thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that Thou wouldest appoint me a set time and remember me' (Job XIV, 18). The chest is an elegant Neoclassical example *rather overgrown with ivy at the time of inspection), while the biblical quotation is remarkable as a reflection of Blake's concern for his own salvation.
