Marble tomb of Lady Mary Leiter Curzon of Kedleston (1870 - 1906) and her husband the 1st Marquess Curzon (1859 - 1925). Two angles look down at Lady Mary, holding the veiled 'crown of life' - symbolising the end of life. The faces have been carved so sensitively that it captures mourning expression of the angels and Lady Mary at rest.
