- Hacche-Thain Headstone
approximately 4 metres north-
east of vestry of Church of St
Mary
GV II

Headstone. Dated 1889 in memory Mary Hacche-Thain. Bath stone enriched with
polychrome mosaic. Gothic style. Upright stone standing approximately 0.9 metres
high. Volcanic stone plinth. Moulded pointed head, flanking pilasters with
sunken panels with trefoil heads and fleur-de-lys finials, and low flanking
pilasters. The top panel has a relief Latin cross fleuree on a stepped base on a
ground of gold and red mosaic. The lower panel is inscribed with Victorian Gothic
Lettering and records the death of Mary Hacche-Thain in 1889.
This is one of a series of unusual headstones in the churchyard which are
distinguished by their use of polychrome mosaic decoration. They are obviously
the result of the Rev. W T A Radford's interest in craftmanship. The finest of
the Clayton and Bell windows in the church, the Jesse window, is a memorial to the
same lady.
