GV II

Stone tomb chest. Dated 1818. To Richard Shawe, d.1816. Signed by Day of Camberwell (either R Day, active from 1822-51, or D Day, who finished production in 1822). Brick plinth. The design recalls the style of Soane. 3 upper stages, the lowest with blocked segmental-arched openings on the returns, topped by a vermiculated band. 2nd stage in form of pedimented box, the tympana filled with floral scrolls, and the corners with pilasters formed from Greek key motifs. Chest itself on 2 step stylobate; tapering and angled corner pilasters which are fluted; capitals with honeysuckle shoulders; drapery between each corner pilaster; Greek meander pattern to cap which is ornamented with a wreath in low relief. Marked I on plan, located along south verge, just north of the Ranken tomb. The burial ground, which was consecrated in 1616, was unusual in not being adjacent to any church or chapel. The monuments form a group with the C18 gates, walls and railings to Dulwich Old Burial Ground (qv).
