Elaborate timber screen by Temple Moore beneath elliptical double-chamfered

north chapel contains a number of memorials to the family of the Earls of
Burlington: in particular a brass to Richard Boyle, the architect, died
1753. (This and the neighbouring brasses may have been removed from the
coffins which lie in the family vault beneath the chancel). Memorial with
white marble inscription set into black marble slab on white marble urns,
with bosses, to Lady Grisold, Countess of Cumberland, died 1613. (Her age
at death left blank). Wall tablet above to Francis the son of Henry Lord
Clifford: small effigy of a child in swaddling clothes under a laurel wreath
and the inscription:

Foliated cross grave slab against north wall; 3 late C17 funeral banners
(and the remnants of a fourth) suspended above. Gauntlets hang to right and
to left of the east window; the helmets which once accompanied them are now
kept in the Rectory. Early C13 scalloped font on 6 dwarf colonettes with
annuli. An interesting feature of this church is the large number of
graffiti, dating from the early C18 on, to be found around the south door of
the porch.
