Summary

Description
English: Tombs, St Thomas à Becket churchyard, Box. The last burial took place here in 1896 following the opening of the town cemetery nearly fifty years earlier 1443510 The tomb on the right has an unusual pyramidal structure above it. Word has it that the widow of the man buried there planned to celebrate his passing by dancing on his grave. To forestall that eventuality someone, a relative perhaps, erected the pyramid. There are no inscriptions on the grave, or none that are legible, so it is not possible to ascertain any more than this.
