At one time it was all the rage to be placed in a box when you snuff it and put on display in a church. Westminster Abbey is stuffed to the gills with folks enjoying their eternal slumber. So much so that it felt crowded and overdone like an episode of Horders. Canterbury Cathedral has fewer effigies. This particular one I just loved. It really seemed as though the person entombed inside was merely sleeping.
