Martyrs of the Reformation
Location in the Abbey: Lady chapel
Type of memorial: Stone
Type of material: Stone

On 13 October 1977 Lady Fisher of Lambeth unveiled a memorial stone to Martyrs of the Reformation. This is just to the west of the tomb of Elizabeth I and her half sister Mary I in Henry VII's chapel in Westminster Abbey. The stone was cut by David Kindersley and the inscription reads:

NEAR THE TOMB OF MARY AND ELIZABETH REMEMBER BEFORE GOD ALL THOSE WHO DIVIDED AT THE REFORMATION BY DIFFERENT CONVICTIONS LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR CHRIST AND CONSCIENCE' SAKE.

A photo of the stone can be purchased from Westminster Abbey Library.

Over the west door of the Abbey the statues of 10 modern martyrs were unveiled in 1998.
