Pair of chest tombs, the inscriptions badly worn and illegible, but c1680-1700, and probably of members of the Conwy family. Both have arcaded panels to long sides with guilloche frieze and fluted angle columns. Shields of arms and angels on shorter sides. Guilloche frieze at margins of inscribed slabs.

Reasons for Listing

Good and rare examples of late C17 memorial sculpture.
