Question from Moira - Burial place of John Dudley
In her book 'Elizabeth and Leicester', Elizabeth Jenkins states that the body of John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland, was buried some while after his execution in the Beauchamp Chapel in St Mary's Church Warwick. I have visited the Beauchamp Chapel on several occasions, and, as far as I am aware, the only tombs there are those of Robert Dudley, Lettice Knollys, Robert Dudley (the 'noble impe'), Ambrose Dudley and Richard de Beauchamp. I had thought that John Dudley was buried in St Peter Ad Vincula at the Tower of London. Can anyone enlighten me?
