Epitaph - Richard Sewell

By Pat & Mike Sewell

This article was originally published in the November 1997 edition of Soul Search, the journal of The Sole Society.

While taking a round-about journey home from the Sole Society gathering, we came across this epitaph in the south aisle of Norwich Cathedral:

In the Cloisters of this

Cathedral lies the body of

Richard Sewell

who faithfully discharged the duties

of Dean's Verger for 41 years

and died respected and regretted

June 14th 1855 aged 86 years.

This stone bears testimony to the

Integrity, Diligence and Consistency

displayed in his long life
