Detailed discussions on
site about how best to lift Arthur Brandon’s ledger slab, a beautiful piece of
brass and enamel inlaid stone (designed by his brother Raphael Brandon who was
the architect responsible for much of the Victorian remodelling of the church).
This is very cracked, and clearly has been bedded to the concrete slab in the

around it and lift it with its concrete backing attached, so this can be
removed in a specialist workshop.
