8/92 Shippard Chest Tomb approximately
4 metres west of Tower of Church
of All Saints
GV II
Chest tomb. Dated 1836 in memory of Henry Shippard. Limestone. Moulded plinth and
lid with very low pitched ridge and moulded edges. Each corner is bead-moulded and
a vertical sunken beadmould close by gives the impression of corner piers.
Rectangular fielded panels each side are framed by beadmoulds and those on the long
sides are flanked by similar verticals. The north side panel is inscribed. The
first word is in Gothic script, the rest in Roman serif capitals and including some
italics. It records the death of Henry Shippard in 1836.
