Index of Brasses

Brasses - Brasses (or Sepulchral Brasses) started to be used on tombstones in the late 13C. They can be on floor-slabs or as part of more elaborate monuments. Many were lost at the Dissolution in 1537 when much church metalwork was melted down. A lot of stones can still be seen with 'indents' where brasses were set. Their use was occasionally revived in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
