A remarkable monument to Charlotte Lucy Beatrix Egerton by Richard Westmacott (1775-1856).
Charlotte Lucy Beatrix Egerton drowned 10 November 1845, the day before her wedding, aged 21, in the Rostherne Mere; the church is overlooks the mere. Unknown whether accident or deliberate; suicide.
A very fine sculpture.
There are three sculptors named Richard Westmacott: grandfather, father and son. This is the work of the middle, perhaps best known, Richard Westmacott.
The church full of other monuments including two more Westmacott’s; the son rather than the father or grandfather.
