Peter de Grandisson, Medieval Gothic Tomb Hereford Cathedral


The tomb of baron Peter de Grandisson (d1358), in Hereford Cathedral's Lady Chapel  consists of a polychrome effigy above which is a scene depicting the Coronation of the Virgin in the centre, and with the figures of St John the Baptist and Pope Gregory I on the right, and the figures of St Thomas à Becket and St Dominic on the left.


The monument was restored in the 20th century when it was repainted and missing heads on the figures were replaced.
