Cadaver Tombs

Cathedral Church of St Saviour, Southwark, London.

Photograph by P.Fairweather. early 1990s.

North Aisle of The Cathedral Church of St Saviour. Formerly the Priory Church of St Mary Overie. This mid 15th century cadaver effigy is placed here temporarily and is nothing whatsoever to do with the notice at the back of the tomb recess (which contains the information to Thomas Cure Esqr. of Southwark Obijt 25th May 1588). It is the usual emaciated corpse laying in an opened Shroud.
