Dean Croft Norwich Cathederal - 1811

"Died, the Rev. Philip Wodehouse, brother of Lord Wodehouse, and a Prebendary of Norwich Cathedral, aged 66.  In digging the grave for the interment of the deceased, beneath the organ loft at the Cathedral, the workmen found, two feet beneath the surface, a stone coffin enclosing a wooden shell containing the body of Dean Croft, who died in 1670.  “His remains were found apparently in a perfect state, excepting the tip of the nose, and the shroud was a little discoloured.”
