Description

The tomb of Sir Richard Vernon (died 1451) and Benedicta de Ludlow is carved from alabaster, and features carvings of angels and bedesmen - perhaps saints - on the sides. Though the Vernons lived at Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, upon marrying into the Tong lordship they chose to be buried at St Bartholomew's Church; a number of tombs, effigies, and monuments of the Vernon family can be found in the church, along with the Vernon Chapel.
