Dickinson Grave - Twycross Churchyard
Dickinson Grave - Twycross Churchyard
This tomb is located close to the south door of St James's church. The inscription commemorates William Dickinson who died in 1808 aged 84 and his wife Mary who died in 1815 aged 86 - good ages even by today's standards but even more so in Georgian times. We are told that William was 'formerly of this parish' but there are no further details; it is very likely, however, that they were people of substantial means to afford such a large monument in a prominent location.
