Church of St Mary Magdalene, Taunton - monument to Robert Graye
The life-size figure of Robert Graye (1635) gazes at the congregation from his niche high up on the wall of the north aisle. His inscription is testimony to how well he was regarded:

'Consecrated to the blessed memory of Robert Graye Esq. and founder. Taunton bore him London bred him. Piety trained him, virtue led him. Earth enriched him Heaven carest him. Taunton blest him London blest him. This thankful town, that mindful city share his piety and his pity. What he gave and how he gave it. Ask the poor and you shall have it. Gentle reader Heaven may strike thy tender heart to do the like. Now thine eyes have read the story give him the praise and Heaven the glory.'
