Does anyone out there know of any good 1640s tombs or brasses in their local church, or perhaps seen one on their travels? I'm trying to compile a list of places to visit and collect photos of as many as I can find. They are a great costume reference that as far as I can tell haven't really been systematically catalogued.

Unless you know different!

There's a lovely one of Mary Moyser, died 1633 (sorry maybe a little early?) at St Mary's Lockington. (E Yorks)

Terrible mobile photos, but I have better on my canon, when I get them downloaded if she's of interest. I also live almost next door to Beverley minster if you do a google and wanted any photos from there let me know.

I have an inkling about Burton Agnes church too, I'm frequently up that way if you do a google and find anything interesting?

St. Mary's at Lydiard House, Swindon. Tombs of the St.John family (who were in the 15th century connected to the Woodvilles.)

Doesn't one of the societies (the MCS?) have a website with a huge album of pictures on it?

For late 15thC monuments the Companion Guide to the Wars of the Roses is an excellent reference

Yes, it's the MCS, one of Grahams's passions. but the ones he's interested in are usually earlier.

Here are some of the links.

Graham at http://www.themcs.org is one of the major experts in this field.
He has even done lectures of the subject in the past.
