The Burial Positions in St Peter ad Vincula

The plan you see below is based on the “suggested plan of interments in the chancel” from Doyne C Bell’s 1877 book “Notices of the Historic Persons Buried in the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula in the Tower of London” which is a record of the restoration work carried out on the chapel in 1876 and 1877. The Victorian workers were responsible for laying the tiled floor in the chancel and marking the burial sites with the memorial tiles which can be seen today.

The plan is based on the Chapel’s records of burials and remains found during the work.
