    Tomb at Coleshill at 'Reginolde Dygby Esquyer' son of Simon, died 25 April 1549, and Anne (fn. 133) his wife (date not completed). It is the western of the two on the south side and formerly stood free of the wall, as the inscription is carried round all four sides of the moulded edge of the top slab. This slab, of alabaster, is incised with their effigies in outline; the lines were filled with bitumen, some of which survives. The man is portrayed with long hair, his head resting on his helm; he wears full armour of the period with exaggerated pauldrons, elbow- and knee-cops, &c., and his feet rest on a greyhound. The woman has a close head-dress with fur trimming, bodice with an embroidered collar and pleated sleeves bound at the wrists with cords, a mantle with pendant false sleeves, and fastened down the front below the waist with tags, but raised a little at the bottom to reveal her pleated skirt and shoes. Below them are the figures of eight sons in gowns and four daughters with close caps and puff sleeves, &c. The base is almost a replica of the other; on the plinth mould are carved the initials R A D in Lombardic capitals. On the north side are five shields and at the ends three, painted with the arms of Digby and Danvers. The inscription is in English.
