This mid 13th century tomb of Bishop Walter de Cantelupe (d1266) is made of Purbeck marble. The relief of the effigy is more rounded than that of the nearby tomb of his predecessor the bishop of Worcester William de Blois (d1236) which is still in the Romanesque style and shows the development to the more rounded forms of the early Gothic.
William de la Corner (d1291) was bishop of Salsibury from 1289 until his death whilst on his second mission abroad as an ambassador for Edward I. This tomb is just 1.1 metres in length and is sometimes described as the tomb of a boy bishop. However, small tombs like this were often built when just the heart of the deceased was buried, in this case it was the bones that were returned to Salisbury.
This thirteenth century effigy of a Knight dressed in chain mail and surcoat, is thought to be John de Verdun (d1274) a close supporter of King Henry III. The effigy is sculpted from Barnack Rag stone, and can be found in the Saxon church of All Saints Brixworth, Northamptonshire.
