The Say family memorial hatcments of the mid-18th Century were 'rediscovered' in recent years, having been put away in an obscure place many years ago when it was no longer 'fashionable' to display such things in churches!

It is hoped that one day funding may be secured (as part of the St Edmund's Needs a £Million restoration and refurbishment project) to conserve these fabulous hatchments and restore them to their correct place on the nave north wall (the mounting points are still visible), opposite the Say family Wall Monuments on the south wall, to which they correspond.
