Bridlington Priory Mural Tablets

Bridlington Priory written by the late John. W. Lamb, M.A., Ph.D.

The first group of memorials are to the Creyke family. The detail of the carved pall in marble which drapes the urn so realistically is worthy of attention.

The large brass is unique for its size and inscription which commemorates no less than 32 members of the family from 1567-1877.

Note the play on the name by the corncrake which surmounts the amorial. The next tablet is in memory of Robert Medforth for 33 years a Church warden of the Priory who was elected first Mayor of the Borough of Bridlington on its incorporation in 1899.

The large blue stone is remarkable for its carved inscription and design. In the circle of carved foliage is a lozenge-shaped panel bearing three small lozenge-shaped panels on each of which is carved a fleur-de-lis.
