In the south aisle chapel is a brass to Sir Robert Hayton who died in 1424. Nearby is the matrix for a double brass of which only one brass shield remains. In the chancel are two early 18th-century marble wall plaques to members of the Newcomen family. A marble monument to Charles Bertie and his wife Mary died 1727, made by Andrew Carpenter, London.[5] All Saints was declared redundant by the Diocese of Lincoln in 1973[6] and it is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[7]
