4/148 Redeby chest tomb approximately 1
- metre south of tower of the Church
of St Cuthbert

Chest tomb. Early C19 with main inscription illegible but it incorporates an
earlier slab in memory of John Redeby (dated 1644). Beerstone ashlar. Chest tomb
is rectangular in plan with soffit-moulded flat lid. Any plinth is buried. The
south side contains a rectangular panel flanked by fluted bands with sunbursts
carved in the top corners. The inscription here is inscribed in Gothic lettering
but the name of the deceased and date of death are illegible. The west end appears
to be a reset piece although the inscription fits. It is inscribed in Gothic
lettering and records the death of John Redeby in 1644.
