Situated to the West of the North (Main) door on entry, in a recess lies a typical mid to late 15th century Cadaver on its Tomb Chest.

This is thought to be a monument to an Archdeacon of St David's Cathedral. South Wales. The Archdeacon was John Tynby or Denby and the figure was placed here quite a while before his death in 1499.
