Standon, Staffordshire - All Saints

All Saints dates from 1086.  It was rebuilt in 1847, except the middle aisle and the tower.  It has since been restored three times.

Aged 100 years.

"All the children liked Dick"

"He loved his horses"

Aged 100 years.

The memorial describes a distinguished and brave military career in India,  Aden, and South Africa before death due to enteric fever aged only 27.

It is astonishing to find an effigy apparently split into two pieces, each one in a separate niche.
