Northcote monument, Church of St Thomas, Cricket St Thomas
This is one of two chest tombs (the other is hidden behind the one in view) in the Church of St Thomas churchyard LinkExternal link They are both 18th century. The inscription is a little hard to read but it seems to read, in part, as follows: "here lyeth the body of Joshua Northcote, Chard, who died ? October 1738 aged 36". Both tombs are listed Grade II LinkExternal link Note that the writer of the listing details has interpreted the deceased's first name as John, probably misreading the archaic form of the letter 's' ('f'). Viewers can make up their own minds.
