William Savage, Giles Savage and Katherine Dalston
Alabaster table tomb with effigies of William Savage, died 1616, his son Giles, died 1631, and Giles’ wife Katherine who died in1674. She holding a chrisom child probably representing stillborn, or died soon after birth.
At their feet two lions and what is described as a stag with an arrow through its neck.
Thomas Coventry 1st Earl Coventry
The second monument is to Thomas Coventry 1st Earl Coventry. His remains lie in Crome D’Abitot church. The monument was created by his second wife.
She was, apparently, somewhat imaginative in describing her provenance to the point that the second Earl, son of the first Earl’s first wife, refused to have the monument erected over his father’s remains.
