Katherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk’s memorial

Detail of the effigy of Katherine

Today is the anniversary of the death of Katherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk, who is also known by her married names of Brandon and Bertie. Now, you can find out all about her in Sarah Bryson's excellent article - click here - but I just wanted to share with you these beautiful photos of her tomb, which she shares with her second husband Richard Bertie, at St James's Church, Spilsby, in Lincolnshire. What a magnificent tomb!
