Eight pieces of the base of a monument formerly in the church yard of St Mary's, Leyton, Essex, with crest of the Bosanquet family at the lower end, stone

Museum number: MY1

Curatorial note

These fragments have been used by Soane as the outer rim of the Monk’s tomb.

He designed a new Bosanquet monument in the churchyard at Leyton in Essex (now in the London Borough of Waltham Forest) and in doing so must have had the opportunity to salvage and re-use these parts of an earlier memorial. Soane's monument was in turn demolished in 1957.
