Memorials

A 14th Century Table Tomb in the churchyard on the south side has the effigy of an important woman lying on the top carved out of Purbeck marble.  This is supposedly the burial place of the Countess of  Warwick who fell ill and died in Necton whilst on her pilgrimage to Walsingham.  She expressed her gratitude to the people of Necton by donating some land to the parish.

Memorials to Alice, the daughter of Francis Blomfield, author of the History of Norfolk can be seen on the wall and floor of the south aisle.
