The Tomb of Sir Oliver Style
In the Church of Saint John
19.04.1985 The Baptist Churchyard
Chest tomb. Circa 1702. To Sir Oliver Style, 3rd baronet d.1702, masons probably the Stantons who had been employed by the Styles for their monuments at Beckenham. Square Portland stone chest tomb with cornice and plinth and projecting angle pilasters, set within wrought iron railings; centre of chest surmounted with a gadrooned, fluted urn with tapering stem on square base standing on a pyramidal plinth bearing a relief of the Style arms on each face; similar urns placed over projecting corners. (At time of inspection four of the urns had toppled.) There are square fielded panels with border to each side of the chest, the north and south sides with Latin inscription, partly decayed; fielded panels to each side of pilasters. Wrought iron railings with elaborate central scrollwork panels on stone base. An unusually early opulent churchyard monument.
