SOMERTON CHURCH STREET
SP42NE (South side)
2/85 Group of 4 Collinridge
memorials approx in E of
south aisle of Church of St.
James
6V II

4 headstones. Late C17. Limestone and marlstone. Small headstones (2 of
limestone: 2 of marlstone) have plain panels below shaped beads, all of which
feature a cross standing on a skull flanked by crossed bones. The inscriptions
are partly illegible, but commemorate members of the Collingridge family and
include the dates 1688 and 1690. The stones are the earliest of a group of
approximately 20 memorials plus several footstones to members of the same
family, extending to the early C20. Nearly all include a representation of the
cross, a very unusual feature before the mid C19, possibly indicating a Recusant
connection.
