Heraldry and Church Brasses
|There are a number of
Thurrock churches that contain early memorial brasses,
many of which have heraldic illustrations. There are also
"hatchments" in some of Thurrock's churches.
Thurrock's heraldry can also be found in a number of
other places which are described in a special article by
our guest editor - Christopher Harrold. Heraldry also
appears on some of Thurrock's Inn signs - from the
occasional heraldic beast, to a complete coat of arms.
