She is richly dressed with a little dog, a talbot, nearby. THOMAS kneels at the head, and RADCLIFFE, the younger son at their feet. The four daughters are carved in relief at the back, and two small figures, children who died in infancy kneel at the side. The black robed figure lying under the tomb is probably an earlier GERARD funery figure, carved in their funeral shroud. The Armorial bearings over the tomb are those of SIR GILBERT and his wife. Those of LADY ANNE on the right hand side bear the mullet and bars (stars and stripes) of the WASHINGTON family to whom she was related. The Tudor rose is carved many times on the tomb. 32/ On the Eastern side of Gerard monument. Engraved into stone.
