The remarkable tomb of Captain Robert Smith

Waltham Abbey, Essex

This tomb – that of Captain Robert Smith (d.1697) – is in Holy Cross and St Lawrence Church, Waltham Abbey.

I was alerted to it was sent to me be my musical pal and occasional reader Malcolm Woods.

The ship is the Industria and is depicted negotiating the Rock of Socordia (sloth), which I guess a ship with that name would have to do.

More information and photos can be found here.
