The CHORELEY TOMB

Amongst the gravestones in the churchyard is a listed monument to the Chorley family. In a photograph of the church in about 1880/90 this tomb had railings around it. The monument is mid-nineteenth century and is inscribed on the south side John Chorley (1876) and his wife Mary (1857) while the inscription on the north side is to their son, John, who predeceased them in 1847.
