 Edward Dering recorded the church monuments and inscriptions of his home county, Kent. His accurate drawings are among the earliest of their type. Dering was rightly concerned about these monuments; many were destroyed in the Civil War which began in 1642. These pages show memorial brasses from St Mary's Church, Ashford, which have suffered considerable losses since.
