Sacheverell family
Holy Trinity church has some fine alabaster table tombs commemorating four successive generations of the influential Sacheverell family, Lords of the Manor of Ratcliffe-on-Soar and nearby Barton-in-Fabis from the early 16th century to the middle of the 17th century. The Sacheverells supported the Lancastrian cause during the Wars of the Roses and Parliament in the English Civil War, contributory factors to their wealth and importance, but also probably why their magnificent family tombs escaped the iconoclasm of the Commonwealth.
The tombs were restored to their present condition in 1973 through a generous donation from the Pilgrim Trust. They were dismantled, cleaned and reassembled incorporating a waterproof membrane in the tomb chest.
