4/60 Tucker chest tomb approximately
- 12 metres south of chancel of
Church of St Gregory

Chest tomb. Dated 1845 in memory of the Rev. Marwood and Charlotte Tucker.
Beerstone. Gothic style chest tomb built as a miniature single cell church. It has
a steeply pitched gable-ended roof carved to emulate scallop-shaped slates. Each
gable is surmounted by a Celtic cross. The eaves cornice is carved as foliage. The
sides and ends have blind Gothic arcades with cusped arches and half-engaged columns
with moulded caps. The west end gable contains a bas relief shield bearing an
heraldic achievement. A similar shield on the east end is plain. The north side is
inscribed with plain capital letters and records the death of the Rev. Marwood
Tucker in 1845 and his wife Charlotte in 1844. An inscription in the west end
records that the tomb was erected by the couple's three sons.
