Statues of monarchs[edit]

If anybody reading this happens to have taken pictures of statues of english monarchs at the cathedral, I would greatly appreciate them contacting me at my talk page. These photographs would be brilliant for the articles about the respective monarchs. Especially the early monarchs who lack portraits! Thanks --Cameron (t|p|c) 21:28, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Archaeology[edit]

The article summarising archaeological investigation into the history of Lichfield Cathedral may be worth incorporating into this. It can be found at:

Diocese of Lichfield[edit]

The article notes that the Diocese of Lichfield covers the whole of Staffordshire, which is not quite accurate. St Mark's Church, Winshill, Staffordshire (which was historically in Derbyshire) is part of the Diocese of Derby. See the article on Winshill for further information, although I suspect there are inaccuracies in that article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.166.76.196 (talk) 13:18, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

burial iof the 1st Marquess of Anglesey[edit]

Is it true that Lichfield Cathedral is the burial place of the 1st Marquess of Anglesey? Cyan22 (talk) 16:36, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

As he was Lord Lt of Staffordshire when he died and had significant other links with the county then it's quite likely. 22:31, 25 March 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nthep (talkcontribs)

"Tomb" of Michael Johnson[edit]

Can someone confirm whether it is a tomb or a memorial that Michael Johnson has in the Cathedral. The page on the early life of his son Samuel Johnson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_life_of_Samuel_Johnson says that he was buried in St Michael's church.

I also don't believe the translation quoted for his epitaph. I believe that it should say "chaste" (pure) and not "chastised" (punished). I'm going to take a chance and make the change.MidlandLinda (talk) 20:52, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

I added that information, per the footnote. The footnote gives the translation as 'chastised,' perhaps either an arcane use of the word, or a bad translation. Nevertheless, that is how the original text (cited) has it. MarmadukePercy (talk) 21:31, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
I've read the footnote text a little more now. Those pages are actually talking about St Michael's church and not the cathedral (The link goes straight to p39, but if you scroll back to p37 you see that it's talking about St Michael's.). So whether or not the translation is accurate it doesn't belong on the cathedral page and I'm going to delete it. That source does also answer my question about where Michael Johnson was buried.
