Catherine Mompesson's Tomb, Eyam
Catherine Mompesson's Tomb, Eyam
Catherine was the wife of William Mompesson, the rector of Eyam.
She succumbed to the plague about a year after it commenced, towards the end of its duration.
Her grave is the only known plague grave in the churchyard as she was buried there by special permission following the closure to plague burials.
Towards the end of each August, on the anniversary of the outbreak of the plague and also Catherine's death, a wreath of red roses is placed on the tomb.
