 St Mary, Ashby Magna, Leicestershire

The most noteworthy feature of this graveyard was the large number of metal memorials - 25 in all. We had only seen a handful of broadly similar designs in all the churches we had visited in the previous 18 months.


This lady commemorated at the bottom of this stone appears to have been a mute.
