History and heritage

North Transept

The north transept contain many fine memorials to the citizens of Bristol.

The north transept contains many monuments and memorial plaques.  The monuments on the floor are particularly noteworthy as they commemorate Bristolians who returned from the West Indies and other far flung locations towards the end of their lives. Many will have owned slaves. The memorials are a reminder of that period of our history and a prompt to oppose injustice today. The fifteenth-century vault is filled with entertaining carved bosses, including a possible depiction of the murder of king Edward II.
