On the wall of the south aisle is a brass, which is a memorial to Radulph Elcock, Priest, and was probably made in Coventry. The college mentioned is Tong College, founded and built at the same time as the church and located to the south of the church.

The Latin inscription reads: Here lies Radulph Elcock, Cellarer and Co-brother of the College, who was born in the Town of Stopford in the Country of Chester and died on the Feast of St. Catherine, Virgin and Martyr, in the year of Our Lord One Thousand Five Hundred and Ten.
