Rev. James Hutchinson was Rector the Great Berkhamsted Parish for 20 years. He is buried here with his widow Sophia, who died 22 years after him.

The design of their tomb slab appears to be a copy of a 13th-century recess tomb which can be seen in the St Catherine’s Chapel within St Peter’s Church. This may have been chosen by Sophie as a fond tribute to James Hutchinson’s interest in architecture and the history of St Peter’s.

The inscription is weathered and hard to read. The rear inscription reads:

Also of Sophia Jane widow of the Rev J Hutchinson
Born Aug 12 1820
Died June 27 1895

Condition: good
