How wonderful. I enjoyed the biography of Princess Alice by Vickers. It would be incredible to be able to see her tomb in the church. She greatly admired the religious devotion of her aunts, Empress Alexandra and Grand Duchess Elizabeth.

Search for the remains of James I of Scotland?

James I of Scotland and his queen were buried at Scotland's only Carthusian Priory in Perth,it was known as the Charterhouse.It was founded in 1429 by King James I,he was buried there in 1437 and his queen,Joan Beaufort was interred in 1445.Margaret Tudor,widow of James IV was buried here in 1541.

Not sure that a dig (if there is to be one) would find anything,the Perth Charterhouse was attacked and destroyed by the Reformers in 1559,most of the royal remains were burnt including Margaret Tudor's .

Alfred the Great was buried at Hyde Abbey which was destroyed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539.The burials have been disturbed several times since then,several coffins were discovered in the 1780's and were stripped of lead,the remains inside were simply dumped as per the records. Finding Alfred might well be like searching for a needle in a haystack!

I'll take anyone; I'm on an archeological buzz!

It would be great if they could identify remains after all these centuries since this is going back to 900 A.D.

As a religious person the idea of desecrating the remains of the dead out of hatred or differences in political ideology is just repugnant beyond words. As a lover of history, it's also very, very frustrating.

The story above reminds me of the desecration of the Royal tombs at St. Denis during the French Revolution.

I just noticed that Prince John the son of George V and Queen Mary is buried at St. Mary's Magadalene church in Sandringham.

Why wasn't he buried in a royal crypt? I know he was hidden from the public due to epilepsy, but it seems he wasn't even acknowledged as a royal in death!

He was born at Sandringham at York Cottage and spent all of his short life there. Why bury him in Windsor?

Only senior members of the royal family are buried in a royal crypt. There are only very limited places left (I believe only for Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh). The late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother joined her husband King George VI. Their daughter Princess Margaret only was interred into the same crypt because she was cremated. Otherwise she would have been buried outside as well.

I think there's also place for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall there.

That's not the Royal crypt which is under the church. It's the George Vi memorial chapel which was built much later.

Yes, you are right, I always confuse a crypt, mausoleum, burial vault or memorial chapel, etc.




From what I once understood, the Queen and the Duke will be interred in the George VI Memorial Chapel. There seems to be space for the two but for the Prince of Wales, his consort and his descendants (Prince William, Prince George) new places need to be created, I believe.
