Effigy said to be Simon Ralegh

The south aisle, probably the former St John the Baptist chapel, has 14th-century ribbed niches, altered in the 19th century, which formerly contained several effigies of which three survive. This mid 13th-century effigy is said to be of Simon de Ralegh (d. c.1284) but is said to date from c.1260, which if correct would make it his older brother Sir Warin.
