There are a huge number of epitaphs and memorials mounted on the walls of Holy Trinity in Kendal. Huge numbers of these decorative pieces must have gone missing over the years....the Bellingham, Strickland and Parr families must have erected far more of these works of art over the years than survive today I'm sure. What there is left however, is an amazing collection of memorials dating from the late 1600's, right through to the early 1900's. Again, the Parish church website is a helpful tool in exploring these items Kendal Parish Church web site The memorials shown here are only a selection of those on display at the church. I'll go through them one by one, naming their owners, and if any information is available about the individuals, I'll not that here too.
