Richard Churcher died 16 years before Trinity Churchyard was incorporated. He is buried in what became the north churchyard. There are many icons that symbolize the shortness of life on his gravestone: a skull and crossbones, a winged hourglass, an imitation of a seventeenth-century English bedstead carved at the top of the stone. His grave is the oldest in Trinity Churchyard.
