Please note: I have attempted to arrange the monuments in a ordered manner around the church each in the correct place. Unfortunately I do not have a comprehensiveplan of  St Paul's with all - or even some - of the monuments marked. So I have to relay on the written word. The RCHM volume on London: The City is excellent but, although the description of the monuments and their positions are clear and concise, the cut-off date means the majority of  them are not included. There is always the possibility that some may have moved since the RCHM  inventory was published in 1929.The equivalent Pevsner volume has no such cut-off date but the writer is selective about which monuments are included and when he reaches the Crypt to call several of the descriptions of the monuments 'brief' would be an overstatement! At time the writing is vague and a plan is not included; so, unless you are actually there or very familiar with the church, difficult and at time impossible to follow. I have produced my own plan which I hope will be helpful, which can be accessed here.I have also included a plan of the church from Dugdale's St Paul's from an etching by Wencelaus Hollar

(North of North-West Entrance: underneath the NW Tower)

Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener of Khartoum and Broome (1916).

   Kitchener was drowned when the ship on which he was travelling on a diplomatic mission to Russia, HMS Hampshire, stuck a mine west of the Orkneys. Over 600 crew and passengers were lost.

  Designed by Detmar Blow & Sir Mervyn Macartney. Marble effigy with Sts George & Michael and a Piet
à, all by Sir William Ried Dick (1922-5).

  Lord Kitchener is famous for the often parodied WW1 poster and his death was subject to numerous conspiracy theories. In 1926 a hoaxer claimed a Norwegian fisherman had discovered his body, which was brought to England for burial in St Paul's. However the authorities opened the coffin to find it was full of tar to act as a weight. Lord Kitchener lies with HMS Hampshire in Scappa Flow.

Bronze effigy and allegorical figures of Painting and Sculpture. The effigy lies on a marble sarcophagus. Below bronze statuettes of allegorical figures: 'Sculpture' (who holds Lord Leighton's statue 'Sluggard') and 'Painting' By Sir Thomas Brock (1902)

Lord Leighton was a painter and sculptor who received a knighthood in 1878 and was created baronet in 1886. He was given a peerage in the New Year's Honours 1896, the first artist to be so honoured, but died the following day. He thus holds the dubious record of holding a peerage for the shortest time.

South Aisle of Crypt

Note: What is termed 'the south aisle' (and 'the north aisle') of the crypt does not begin at the crossing and then progress to the west end of the church, as is would in the body of the church. Rather it begins (for these purposes) at the eastermost end of the crypt and continues to the westernmost. That is there is no 'Chapel of St Faith Aisles' equivalent to aisles of the choir.

The are very many monuments in the crypt often relatively simple wall tablets. I will attempt to find a list of these to add in due course.

Against the East Wall

South Wall - First Recess

Left: Sir Christopher Wren (1723) The large stone slab on the west wall above was designed by Mylne (1807) and includes the famous words: 'Lector, si monumentum requiris, circumspice' which translated reads, 'Reader, if you seek his monument, look around you' He was the architect responsible for building 52 City of London churches - including St Paul's - after the great fire of 1666, as well as many secular buildings, including the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth. He was also Slavilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford and his activities also included physics and mathematics.

Immediately above Wren's stone is a tablet reading 'Remember the men who made the shapely stones of St Paul's Cathedral 1675-1708: Edward Strong, Thomas Strong and all who laboured with them.'
To the right can just be see the Coade stone bust (1819) to James Barry (1806) painter.
Below this the tablet to Robert Hooke (1703) Also an architect as well as an all round scientist and rival of Newton. Among his achievements in physics is Hooke's Law (of elasticity) and in microscopy coining the term cell for a biological unit.

Chapel of St Faith South-East Recess
West Wall

The Chapel of St Faith was converted into the Chapel of the Order of the British Empire in 1960. Some movement and alteration of monuments were made.

A floor slab marks the grave of Canon Henry Liddon whose monument is shown above. (No Image)

A raised monument to Dean Millman was removed when the OBE chapel was refurbished and a floor slab replaced it.

The Wellington Tomb
The tomb is situated at the west end of the Chapel of St Faith in what might be called a porch or ante-room

Tomb of Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington (1852) . The plinth is of gray granite and the sarcophagus - by Penrose (1855) is of Cornish Porphyry.

Other Monuments
On the walls around the monument can be seen a series of simple tablets to 20th century soldiers (1979)

General Sir Sam Browne VC (1901) Relief of a sepoy by Forsyth (1903)
During the Indian Mutiny of 1857 the then Captain Sam Browne had his left arm severed at the shoulder by a sword cut in battle. He was awarded the VC for this engagement. Without his left hand he was unable to control his scabbard or draw his sword and he came up with the idea of wearing a second belt over the right shoulder which would hook into the heavy leather belt around the waist and hold the scabbard and sword in position. Hence the origin of the 'Sam Browne' It is traditionally worn by those entitles to carry swords - commissioned officers and warrant officers - although for most of its history it has supported a heavy pistol.

N-S Passage

Under the Dome
The Rotonda

[15] Vice Admiral Horation Nelson (1805) The black marble sarcophagus was made by Bernadetto de Rovezzano (1524-9) for the tomb of Cardinal Wolsey, who was to have been buried at Windsor but fell out of favour of Henry VIII. The pedestal pf granite and black and white marbly  was probably by Mylne (1806-7)

Bays around the Rotunda
We begin with the east bay (no. the first)  - along the long west-east axis of the crypt - and progress clockwise.

First Bay

Florence Nightingale (1910)  Red marble and alabaster by A G Walker (1916). Social reformer, statiscisian and founder of modern nursing. The 'lady with the lamp' came into prominence during the Crimean Way
She is buried in East Wellow, Hampshire. The offer of burial in Westminster Abber was declined by her relatives.

Second Bay

Admiral Charles William de la Poer Beresford, 1st Baron Beresford (1919) Popular 'Charlie B' managed to combine being a naval officer and a MP. His later career sufferend owing to a long standing dispute about naval reforms with Admiral of the Fleet Sir John Fisher, who blocked his promotion. Buried Putney Vale Cemetery, South London. By Tweed  Admiral Sir Edward Codrington (1851) Hero of Trafalgar and Navarino. Said to have been buried in St Peter's Eaton Square but records examined in 1954 state that he was buried in Brookwood Cemetery.  Admiral of the Fleet Sir Frederick W Richards (1912) Rose to become First Naval Lord By Pomeroy. The bust is described as 'blurry' by Pevsner no it is not the photograph!
Admiral of the Fleet Sir Henry Bradwardine Jackson (1929) Pioneer of ship to ship wireless communication. WWI naval officer whose reputation suffered when German destroyers appeared in the Channel 1916 Captain Sir John Hawley Glover RN (1885)
Naval officer and later colonial governor
Marble bust
Admiral of the Fleet Sir Charles Edward Madden Bt (1935) WWI naval officer

Left: The floor monument in the foreground covers the grave of  Admiral of the Fleet John Rushworth Jellcoe, 1st Earl Jellicoe (1935). He fought in the Anglo Egyptian War, the Boxer Rebellion and commanded the Grand Fleet at the Battle of Jutland in 1916 during Word War I. He became First Sea Lord before being relieved of his post at the end of 1917. In the 1920's he became Governor General of New Zealand.

The floor slab in the middle ground may  be that of Admiral of the Fleet David Beatty, 1st Earl Beatty (1936) who was buried in this bay. The slab is by Lutyens (1938).
He was involved in the Mahdist War and commanded the First Battleship Cruiser Squadron at the Battle of Jutland. His aggressive approach was contrasted with that of the cautious Jellicoe but, whereas Jellicoe made no serious errors, it has been identified that Beatty did. He followed Jellicoe's career becoming Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Fleet and First Sea Lord in 1917, a post he held for a record of over seven years.
He married a wealthy American heiress, which enabled him to lead a more independent life than most other officer. He insisted acting as pall bearer at the funeral of his old chief, Jellicoe in 1935 even though he was seriously ill; in fact a member of the crowd sent him a glass of brandy. This and other unwise actions may have hastened his own death the following year. He had asked to be buried next to his wife at Dingley, Leicestershire but this request was ignored and he was buried at St Paul's, the last burial to take place there

In the background is Lord Nelson's tomb and on the wall can be seen the monuments to a number of Naval Officers which are detailed above.

Fourth Bay

The Transepts
These are referred to in Pevsner as the North and South Crossing Aisles; I will use the more familiar terms North and South Transepts
They house the parts of the fire damaged monuments that were salvaged from the Great Fire; I have included copies of etchings by Wencelaus Hollar (fron Dugdale's St Paul's) to place alongside Amanda's photographs of the fragments of the monuments. There are more of these etchings below of monuments that were completely destroyed. Also in the transepts are large monumets to later worthies which were brough down from the main body of the church.

South Transept

There were more monuments than those listed above as can been seen from the plan of the Old Church

Dean Henry Hart Millman (1876) By F J Williamson Historian and Dean of St Paul's. He wrote the hymn 'Ride On Ride On In Majesty'
Note the entry in Wikipedia is confusing when it states that he was buried in the Crypt with an elaborate tomb which was replaced by a simple slab.... See above Chapel of St Faith. The above is a monument not a tomb.

Admiral George Brydges  Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney (1792) by Rossi (1810-15) Went to sea at 14 and rose through the ranks. Although a very capable officer, he was also vain, selfish and unscrupulous in his pursuit of prize money and furthering the fortunes of his family . Saw service in War of Austrian Succession, Seven Years' War, American Revolutionary War. Four Anglo-Duthch War. Buried at Old Arlesford, Hampshire. Rodney A street in Liverpool is named after him.  Admiral Sir Pulteney Malcolm (1832)  by E H Baily (1842)  Served in American and French Revolutionary Wars, War of 1812 and Napoleonic Wars.  General Sir Charles James Napier (1853)  by G G Adams (1856) Served in Peninsular War; C-in-C India. Buried in Royal Garrison Church, Portsmouth. The city of Napier in New Zeeland is named after him as well as ten English Pubs.  General Sir William Francis Patrick  Napier (1860) by G G Adams (1860) Brother of Sir Charles. Soldier and military historian. Served in Peninsular War. Buried West Norwood Cemetery, London.

[4] Sir John Wooley (1595) and his wife,  Elizabeth. MP and Queen Elizabeth I's Latin secretary  
[3] William Hewitt (1599) Marble

North Transept

[2] Sir William Cokayne (1626) & Mary (Morris)
Lord Mayor of London. Marble
Where's the error? William Cokain was certainly buried in St Paul's and I think we can be sure that that is his fire damaged effigy above. However the etching says 'Charles Viscount Cullen.'Sir William's eldest son, Charles, was created Viscount Cullen in1642 and died in 1661. So the monument could indeed be his, although it is not listed on the plaque above. Sir William had one son and six daughters: and one son and six daughters kneel at the tomb, indication the monument could be that of Sir William but wrongly inscribed. Unfortunately I cannot discover how many children Charles had: this would be concluding evidence.

Monuments Lost in the Great Fire
These monuments appear to have been totally destroyed in the Fire of London and left no remains.
They were recorded in Dugdale's St Paul's which was illustrated by etchings executed by Wencelaus Hollar. My copy of this book was stolen, together with many others, several years ago and all sold to an unscrupulous book dealer in North Yorkshire. I could not replace the antiquarian book but found a copy of the etchings in a modestly priced book a few years ago; these are reproduced below. I personally find the etchings of Hollar rather coarse and heavy so the theft of this book was not all that disastrous. 

Above: on the left
is the tomb of Sebba (also spelled Sæbbi or Sebbi) (626?-695). His tomb survived the fire of 1087 and his remains were later transferred to a black marble sarcopagus in the mid 12th century, which I presume is what we see here. This did not survive the Great Fire. Sebba and his cousin, Sighere became joint kings of Essex on the death of their predecessor in 664 but a rivalry developed with the apostatization of Sighere the following year while Sebba remained a Christian. He become sole king on the death of his brother and abdicated in 694 to entere a monastry. He died the following year.

On the right
is a similar tomb of Æthelred the Unræd (c 966-1016). Often called 'Ethelred the Unready' owing to a mistranslation of the Anglo-Saxon word of his nickname. His name means 'noble council' and the nickname (added after his death) is an oxymoron meaning 'no council'.
He was son of King Edgar and his second or third wife, Ælfthyth. He became king at twelve following the assassination of his elder half brother, Edward the Martyr, which was carried out by his supporters although it is unlikely that the young Æthelred was himself involved.
During his reign in the 980's the Danish raids started again after several decades of relative peace. Following the Battle of Maldon (991) in which the Anglo-Saxon defeat the King was advised to buy off the Danes rather than continue the armed struggle, paying Danegeld, effectively 'protection money.'
In 1002 Æthelred ordered the St Brice's Day Massacre of Danish Settlers which the following year provoked King Sweyn Forkbeard of Denmark to invade England. After loosing an armed struggle the English King and his sons  fled to Normandy in 1013 and Sweyn was declared King of England on Christmas Day that year. However Swyen died the following year and Æthelred returned to England.  Æthelred died in 1016 and was succeeded by his son Edmund Ironside.
There is a lot more detail to complex and interesting story which can be read by following the links. Who needs fiction when you can read history!


Above Left: John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster ( 1340- 1399) and his wife, Blanche of Lancaster (1347 - 1368).  John of Gaunt (Gaunt probably from his birth place, Ghent) was the third of Kind Edward III's five sons who reached adulthood.
His early career was spent fighting in France with his father and brother during the 100 Years' War. Most of his sole exploits were failures, including the attempt to reach Aquitaine from English held Calais, a 560 mile journey of five months. Although this was highly regarded at the time virtually nothing was achieved and one third of his men were lost, many through disease. He was generally blames from the failures during  later part of this phase of the War.
His first wife was Blanche of Lancaster, daughter of Henry of Grosmont, 1st Duke of Lancaster and it his from this marriage than John inherited his vast estates, wealth and titles. This marriage produced seven children but Blanche died in 1368. In 1371 he had married Constance of Castile, daughter of  King Pedro the Cruel who had been murdered by his half brother, Henry the Fratricide.
During his marriage to Constance, by whom he had two children, he began an affair with Kathryn Swynford, an affair which produced four illegitimate children, called the Beaufords, (three boys and a girl). After Constance's death in 1394 he married Kathryn and the children were legitimized by an act of parliament, but barred from the throne.
He returned to England from France in 1374 and eventually during his father's old age and the incapacity of his brother, the Black Prince, he assumed control of the government. He continued to protect John Wycliffe, possibly to counteract the growing political power of the church. However he became increasingly unpopular partly because of the setbacks in the 100 Years' War and the high taxation. He had annulled the majority of the reforming acts that the recent parliaments had passed; his unpopularity was not helped by his ostentatious wealth and haughty manner.  Moreover he had neither the charisma nor had achieved the military triumphs of his father or his brother to even begin to counteract this increasing unpopularity.
He made a failed attempt to seize the Castilian Crown in 1376, even making an alliance with King John of Portugal, who married Gaunt's daughter, Phillippa. His eventually failure led to his making a secret alliance with John of Castile, whereby Constance renounced her claim to the throne and Gaunt's daughter with Constance, Catherine, married son of King John of Castile's son Henry. King John was the son of Henry the Fratricide mentioned above.
He left the Iberian Peninsula for Aquitaine where her was appointed governor and, in due course, succeeded his brother as Duke. Again he proved unpopular and unsuccessful, the Gascons resenting his rule, as they had until recently been ruled directly by the English crown.
He returned to England in 1889 where he was a great influence during the minority of Richard II, his nephew, mediating between the King and rebellious nobles, including his son Henry of Bolingbroke. He made some disastrous political decisions, such as on taxation which led to the Peasants' Revolt; in fact the rebels destroyed his house in London in their anger against him.
He died in 1399 and his estates were declared forfeit to the crown. This act of malicious folly led to the invasion of the future Henry IV and Richard's deposition and death.
