About This Book

Diamond-shaped funeral hatchments first came into vogue in the early 17th century, but are rarely used today. They are objects of considerable artistic merit, besides being of great interest and important to students of heraldry, genealogy and local history. This is the fourth volume of this valuable and attractive series in which those hatchments still surviving in Britain are recorded for the first time.
