Tombstone


Tombstone in blue stone with the arms of “de Fonteny et de Raul (16th century) depicting a recumbent couple: Raes de Fonteny, died in 1540 and his wife Jeanne de Raul, (Raulet or Rauwelet) died in 1550. (Work badly damaged).The man is bare headed but some parts of his chain mail are still visible. The woman has a headdress and her clothes fall around her feet in rich pleats. Bizarrely, the stone has been sculpted into a hollow in order to separate the couple up to the waist. The slab was carefully restored in 2008 and it is shown prominently on the right of the church.
