Savage memorial, Elmley Castle village church, Worcestershire, England, UK.

A partial view an alabaster altar tomb with a black marble slab on which rest the three recumbent effigies of William Savage, Giles Savage, who died in 1631, and his wife Catherine holding the figure of a posthumous daughter. Not visible on this picture, at their feet, are the kneeling figures of their four other children. On mural slabs above the tomb are inscriptions, arms, etc.

The Savage family were the local major family, of status Knights, living in Elmley Castle village or nearby. (There is another larger memorial against the opposite wall to the Earl of Coventry.)
