7/89 Group of 4 iron Troyte grave
- markers about 9 metres south west
of the porch of the Church of All
Saints

GV II


Group of 4 iron grave markers. Late C19. 4 identical floriated crosses, each cross
with one intial on the stem. 2 of them commemorate A.H.D. Troyte and Fanny, his
wife; the others probably 2 of their children. A.H.D. Troyte, patron of the living,
funded and was personally active in the restoration of the church 1854-8. Troyte
died in 1857. An article in T.E.D.A.S. refers to the reticence of the graves of
Troyte and his wife; "two simple turf graves, an iron cross at the head of each " and
a brass wall plaque in the church mentions the memorials as "Two iron crosses near
the lich-gate". It seems likely that they have been moved to their present position.

Diocesan Architectural Society, VI, (1861), 220-230.
