Simple stone gravestones, richly carved table tombs and glowing stained glass memorial windows are part of the rich heritage to be found in England’s churches and churchyards. They all mark the irrevocable certainty of death and seem to proclaim ‘Memento Mori’ – ‘Remember you are mortal.’ The quintessence of the English churchyard and its memorials has been beautifully captured by Simon Marsden, who presents the results of his recent tour of the country.
