Matcham tomb at Slaugham church

Against the east wall of Slaugham church is the impressive Matcham tomb. It is not on the usual tourist route around the church and it is all too easy for visitors to the church to miss the tomb, which is a shame because it is truly an inspiring experience. It marks the place of internment for several members of the family, but it is known mainly as the location of the remains of Catherine Matcham, sister of Lord Nelson, who lived at Ashfold.
Since this photograph was taken the railings have been removed, and I assume this was during WWII when the metal was collected to supposedly manufacture armaments.
