The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Ethelbert
Hereford Cathedral was a Cathedral of the Old Foundation

   It had been very many years since I visited Hereford Cathedral and then I did not have a camera. While researching for the Herefordshire page I found a number of etchings by T & G Hollis which I thought well worthy of sharing on line. I did not have, nor had I ever been sent, photographs of the monuments in the Cathedral so I  posted a list - based on the text of  the RCHM  Herefordshire entry for the Cathedral until such times as I had some photographs. The cut-off date for the moments in this RCHM work is 1714.

   The above was written in the summer of 2021 after receiving the Herefordshire RCHM volumes as a birthday present, so we decided to visit Herefordshire in he autumn later that year, planning two days in Hereford City to see the Cathedral and the city itself. However this proved to be a disappointment: parking is relatively expensive and the cathedral was only open one morning of our visit, there being a wedding in the afternoon of one day and a ceremony of the new dean being installed the next. I am presuming this is the term for how these very reverend gentlemen and ladies are welcomed into office. However the staff were friendly and helpful, entry was free and there was no charge or any restriction on taking photographs, except - quite rightly - in the area where the Mappa Mundi is displayed and the chained library.

   Unfortunately all this was more than offset by the loud and long playing of the organist all morning which drove me - and the voluntary staff to whom I spoke - to distraction. Because of the Covid epidemic several areas were roped off but as these were quite empty this was no problem; the crypt itself was locked. One area was permanently closed off by an opaque glass screen and shelving and I know there is a least one interesting monument behind it. Hereford Cathedral does have a habit of blocking the monuments with articles of furniture, making it awkward and at time impossible to photograph them. One monument is completely surrounded by a pile of chairs and, although you can see the effigy, you cannot read the inscription. The south choir aisle - the one that contains the row of medieval bishops - is roped off  'because it is used as a storage area', although I did ask and was freely permission to visit this area, as would others. The Cathedral really does need to solve this unsatisfactory storage problem.

  So this is an attempt to combine the original page with my series of photographs; unfortunately I did not have time to note where the monuments were situated so at times there may be errors.

   Note: I have consulted two reference books on Hereford Cathedral: the Pevsner volume which was published in 1963 and reprinted in 2001; and the RCHM volume which was published in 1931 so we can expect some differences from the situation  at out visit in 2021

The Nave

Above and below: [42] Sir Richard Pembridge K.G. (1375) (ascribed) Alabaster altar tomb and effigy. Tomb chest with paneled side alternating with quatrefoils holding his shield of arms, . The right lower limb has been replaced since Hollis's etching.

Nave - North Aisle

[42] Bishop Charles Booth (1535)

Altar tomb with six quatrefoil panels containing  carved shields of arms: i. Booth. ii. See of Hereford. iii. Booth. iv. St Ethelbert. v. The Deanery. vi. Booth. Effigy in mass vestments, angels supporting head, feet on lion. In four centre arched recess also with shields of arms: i. Booth impaling the See. ii. Booth impaling the Deanery.

(This is the first photograph I took in the Cathedral; through the entrance door and turn left. It is the first example of the annoying habit of the Cathedral of obstructing monuments with furniture; there is a grill there after all!  In parish churches I do a little furniture removal but it is more difficult in  cathedral where there are more eyes on you! The problem was to get worse - far worse!)
The Nave - South Aisle

Above left top and bottom:  [44]  Dean Stephen of Ledbury (1352) (Ascribed, but probably earlier) Effigy in surplice, head on cushion, feet on broken beast. In arched recess.

Right and top right:  [45] Treasurer Pembridge (1328) (ascribed) Effigy in mass vestments, head on cushion, feet on beast, with two keys dangling from left arm. In arched recess.

North Transept

[38] Bishop Thomas Cantiloup (1282) (ascribed) This takes the form of a shrine with an altar-tomb and an open superstructure, with the altar-tomb possible older than the rest. The reassembled altar tomb has six bays on its long side and two on its west, each filled with a figure of a knight. On the slab there is an indent for a brass of a bishop and one for a small figure of St Ethelbert, this latter brass being now in the Cathedral library. The superstructure has an equal number of bays and a plain top slab. The east side, against the wall, is plain and clearly not meant to be seen. 

Above right and centre top: [39] Dean John de Aquablanca (1320) (ascribed) Low altar-tomb with effigy in surplice. Head on cushion, feet on lion. Remains of gablette.
Above left and centre bottom; the whole monument is shown below left: [35] Bishop Thomas Charlton (1343-4) 
Plain altar-tomb with paneled front, half-round effigy in mass vestments, and canopied recess. Gablette over the head.

Above: see [35] Bishop Thomas Charlton (1343-4)
 Above Top: [37] Bishop Theophilus Field (1636) Alabaster bust, wearing rochet, chimere, ruff, skull cap, and beard. Holding book. Some traces of colour.
Above bottom:  [36] [Bishop Herbert Westfaling (1601-2)] Modern base with effigy, wearing rochet, chimere, skull cap and long beard. Head on large cushion, right hand raised to head. Original base destroyed but backpiece remains in bishops' cloister, N. wall..

[26] Edmund Frowsetoure (1529) Dean of Hereford
Note the figures of saints in the side panels
One further brass [27] of the 16th century is reported by the RCHM

South Transept

[40] Alexander Denton and Anne (Wyllyson) (1566) Paneled alabaster altar-tomb with seven shields of arms in wreaths. Alabaster effigies: he in plate armour with double chain around neck and cross at end, head on crested helm, feet on lion, gauntlets at side; she in close gown with puffed shoulders, high collar, small ruff, girdle with pendant. Swaddled infant at side.
[41] Bishop John Trevenant (1404)  Effigy in mass vestments, head on double pillow, feet on lion. In canopied recess.

 The original paneled altar-tomb is now in S.E. transept (see below)

The Chancel - North Aisle
The first monument is between the North Transept and the North Chancel Aisle

[29] Bishop Peter de Aquablanca (1268) Altar-tomb, effigy and canopy. Plain altar-tomb, stone effigy, mass vestments with some remaining colour.
 The Photograph was taken from that transept and is not entirely satisfactory. Those taken from the aisle failed. Photograph of canopy needs to be included.

The following monuments are between the  North Chancel Aisle and the Chancel. The photographs were taken from the aisle

[20] Bishop John Stanbury (1474) Alabaster effigy and brass, in mass vestments, and altar tomb on stone base. Head on cushion supported by angels, feet on lion. The tomb chest is surrounded by a series of weepers: saints and angels holding a shield as well as other items: i. bishop, ii. St Ethelbert with sword and model of church, iii.bishop with object. iv. Virgin and Child. v. bishop. vi. Edward the Confessor with scepter and ring. At ends: i. See of Hereford. ii. St Ethelbert. iii. The Deanery. iv. Stanbury. v. The King. On wall to west brass plate with inscription reset.
Left: [22] Bishop Robert Bennet (1617) Alabaster effigy in rochet, chimere, ruff and skull cap. Head on cushion, feet on lion. Shields of arms. Canopy destroyed. This effigy is on the aisle side
Above : [21] Bishop Giles de Braose (1215) ?
Late 13th century stone effigy in mass vestments holding a model of a building. Head on cushion, feet on pedestal. The effigy is next to 22 but on the chancel side

The following effigies are under arches in the north wall of the north chancel aisle.
These are a beginning of curious retrospective monuments of early bishops executed early 14th century.  Pevsner makes silly, petulant remarks about them which are quite unnecessary.

 [28] Hugh de Mapenor (Bishop 1216 - 1219) Erected c. 1300

[27] Geoffrey de Clive (Bishop 1115- 1117) Erected 1300.

 [24] Reynelm (Bishop 1107-1115)
Erected c. 1300

[25] RCHM: 'In the Stanbery chapel, in recess in S. wall ...effigy...similar to last' [24] and moved with a similar recess in the aisle when the chapel was built'. There remains, '...W part of original recess to the W. of doorway of chapel'
The Stanbery chapel is itself numbered [26]

The Chancel - South Aisle
This is another storage area for chairs, kneelers etc which makes photography difficult. It is also roped off suggesting not visitor access: I was readily given permission to enter, take photographs, and move the furniture but there was rather a lot!

The following monuments are between the  South Chancel Aisle and the Chancel. The photographs were taken from the aisle

Above bottom and right:
[23]  Bishop Richard Mayhew or Mayo (1516) Effigy in mass vestments on altar tomb with figures of saints. Two animals at feet,  head on cushion Triple arched canopy with fan vaulting. The trefoil panels contain saints: i. St Ethelbert with sword and church. ii. St Peter. iii. St John the Evangelist with book and palm. iv. Christ holding orb. v.Virgin and Child. vi. St John the Baptist with lamb and book. vii. St Paul. viii. Bishop (St Thomas Cantilupe)
Above top: Bishop Robert of Lorraine (or Losinga) (1095) (ascribed) but erected c. 1300.  Similar to [21] and also holding a model of a building. Brass plate indent on wall above.

Apart from top right these photographs are unsatisfactory - especially right bottom as he does have a head. I do not know what happened but I will replace them in due course.

From the east these are:
[31] William de Vere (1198), [32] Gilbert Foliot (1187), [33] Robert de Bethune [1148], [34] Robert de Melun (1166-7)
All erected c. 1300

The North-East Transept

This is used partly as a storage area for chairs, which obstruct some monuments, and is partly closed off by a wooden screen with opaque glass panels through which we could see a large amount of shelving. I was unable to insert a camera over the screen to at least make an attempt to photograph the monuments beyond. I find it rather dissapponiting that the public are denied access to this area - but see note below.

[6] [Bishop Robert Purfey or Parfew (1558)] Effigy wearing amess and surplice on altar tomb quatrefoil panel with shields. Head, hands and feet missing. Against north wall.  Very poor
[7] Bishop Richard Swinefield (1316-17) Arched recess, at back of which a slab with indents of crucifix with attendant figures.
[8] Arched recess with modern altar tomb on which effigy of male civilian, head on cushion, feet on defaced beast. c. 1300. Against south wall.
[9] Tablet with indent of a kneeling figure, scroll, Trinity and inscription plate. c. late 15th/ early 16th century.
[10] Luke Booth (1673) Tablet with cartouche of arms in modern stone frame. On west wall.
[11] Male civilian, defaced head on cushion, feet on beast. Early 14th century. On floor
[12] Lady with long gown and draped head dress. Defaced. Early 14th century. On floor
[13] Lady in long gown, face cut away. On floor
[14] Male civilian. Feet cut away. Early 14th century. On floor. Left. NB Hollis reports this effigy to be in the cloisters.
[15] Five cartouches of arms and one achievement; from 17th century monument.   
The above list is from the RCHM volume and the etching from Hollis.

   Pevsner mentions the following in the Herefordshire volume: 

   [6] Bishop Parfew (1557), referring to the altar tomb as above and the effigy as a ,'shapeless lump"
   [7] Bishop Swinefield (1337), mentioning 'no effigy left'
   [8] is almost certainly the effigy in the photograph below left: it is against the south wall, civilian male, as described by the RCHM. Pevsner also describes it as 'recess with ball flowers' the civilian effigy as 'badly defaced' but gives the date as late 13th century.

   He refers to 'four unamed stone effigies on the floor', all early 14th C. He does not mention the gender. These  probably refers to [11], [12], [13], and [[14] above. In the RCHM volume there is a photograph of these four effigies. [14] is without any doubt the effigy drawn by Hollis and shown on the left.
   He mentions 'a foliated coffin lid, 13th C' and 'parts of several others'. Also 'indents for infilling of composition, priest late 14th C and knight early C15.

    Also Dean Dawes (1869) by Mathew Noble, 1890. White marble effigy on veined black marble slab. This is shown  in the left lower photograph below; it is outside the screen but, rather unfortunately, now surrounded by chairs.

   The upper photograph in the centre is possibly of a bust to James Thomas (1757); Pevsner lists this as being in the South-East Transept.

   Neither of the last two monuments are listed in the RCHM volume as they are after the cut off date.

   There is no mention of  [9], [10], nor [15].

   The two photographs in the right row below which get no mention in the RCHM, being beyond the cut off date, and are of no interest to Pevsner are:

  Top right: John Butler (1802) Bishop of Hereford; Bottom right: William Elliot (1903) Prebendary and rural dean of Hereford.

Note: We were not able to visit the crypt on our recent visit, it being locked. Recent photographs show four medieval effigies in the crypt; these are not referred to in the relevant RCHM nor the Pevsner volumes so they may well be those mentioned above, which have been moved in the intervening years.

The RCHM reports that there is a medieval floor slab against the wall in this transept.
Also twelve brasses [2-13] , some fragmentary, from the 15th to 17th centuries
Also two brass indents [1,2] of the 14th and 15th centuries

The South-East Transept

[16] Bishop George Coke (1646) Effigy wearing rochet, chimera, ruff, and skull cap. Head on head on tasseled cushion.

[17] [Bishop Lewis Charlton (1369)] Effigy in mass vestments, much defaced. Feet on lion.
Canopy destroyed. Most of altar tomb is modern. The arms on the central (original) panel are those of the Bishop; those on the west end (not shown) are those of the see.

[19] Dean John Harvey (1500) ? Early 15th century altar tomb from Tevenant monument [41] with quatrefoil panels alternating with trefoil headed panels, in larger panels are shields of arms to Deanery, Trevant, See of Hereford.. Alabaster effigy of c. 1500 wearing mass vestments, head on cushion, feet on lion. The arms are Trevant. Much defaced.

The Bishop's Cloister

The East Alley of the Bishop's Cloister now contains the café and shop; the South Alley does contain a few monuments but now houses the Mapa Muni in its western aspect. The West Alley, with the exception of the south aspect with contains the chained library, is mostly destroyed.

Deciphering these Monuments
  I rarely copy the inscriptions on the monuments while in the church: it is not just lack of time but  that quite often they are difficult to read in situ. This may be because the churches are sometimes dimly lit (there are several churches we have come across on our travels where there was no electricity installed);  the text may be worn or faded and therefore difficult to decipher. For example the letters may be but thinly incised and the pigment which filled them has long since faded. Unfamiliar lettering and old spelling and grammar can without some practice be difficult to read. Older texts are often in Latin and this is the country priests' medieval Latin not that of Vergil, Caesar or Cicero we all remember so well from school. Or , much more rarely, Greek which the majority of us do not. However to mitigate the language barrier the Latin phrases are often standard ones (Hic jacet...) and the names are attempts to Latinize and turn into the genitive case English names.

  Rather paradoxically, I often think, taking a photograph will solve at least some of these problems. You can spend time trying to work out what is written. For example in short a list of children seen recently the final name read, And Ano ___ who died in his Infancy. With Photoshop the original photograph can be enlarged and the brightness, contrast and colout changed so that the illegible becomes legible or, at least, nearly so. I finally saw what had been written: it was And Another who died in his Infancy. Two aspects threw me off the scent were that capital letters appear to be used where we no longer would use them and that children who die at or shortly after birth are not Christened and hence have no name.

This series was particularly difficult to decipher: the monuments were high up on the wall and the light was low in that position. To read them directly binoculars and a powerful torch would be need - plus a considerable amount of time. I did photograph them but this presents those trade off problems. It is best to use a telephoto lens as enlarging the photograph on the computer will prove unsatisfactory. To avoid camera shake with a telephoto lens you need a fast shutter speed as a tripod would not have be satisfactory in place the were taken. However these monuments were in fairly poor light and some were very dark so a slow shutter speed would be needed - or a large aperture. Turning the ISO setting to a high number would help but the higher you go the more noise appears and the photograph is harder to read. I attempted various compromises which sometimes succeeded but at other times did not.

I will return to the inscription as often a fresh look can solve the problem.

Latin text and difficult to make out: Mariam, wife of Edward Honeywood...On the lower section, which appears to be of a later date, it states that the monument was erected by the first son, Thomas, and gives the date of death as 1717.  Upper section: Sarah Taylor (Basley) (1810), the first wife of Rev  Charles Taylor. their son, John Taylor (1817) at 8. Also James Lane Taylor (1838) and Lucy Cecili Taylor (1843),  children lf the Rev Charles and his second wife. 'The above are interred in a vault beneath this tablet'. Lower section: Rev Charles Taylor DD (1863) Prebendary and Chancellor of the Diocese. 'suddenly cut off in the full vigour of his facilities by a fall from his carriage.
Brass below: CharlesTaylor (1881) Rector of Cressingham and Prebendary. Son of the above.
