In the chancel of St James Church are the tombs of Sir Edward Fitton, 1st baronet, and his wife Anne who died in 1619 and 1644 both their tomb is constructed of alabaster. It is described as being a very large monument, of splendid design. The Knight's head is bare, and rests upon two cushions. His neck is covered with a wide ruff, whilst the cuirass is slightly pointed, and hangs over the waistline; the shoulders of Sir Edward are again protected with leather pauldrons. The figure of Ann is also resting her head on cushions, but is seen wearing a widow's veil, enclosed by curly locks that fall beneath her chin. She has a tight bodice, fastened, with full sleeves, with double turned-back cuffs. Generally, these monuments are considered to be of good workmanship.
