Photography is forbidden in St George’s Chapel, so the best I can do to chart the resting place of Kings and Queens is to refer you to a plan of the building, which you can view by clicking on the link, and lead you on a tour of the relevant locations on the plan as follows: From bottom left:
5) Tomb of King George v (1910-1936) and Queen Mary
6) Tomb of King George vi (1936-1952) and now also, HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. In the same tomb are the ashes of HRH Princess Margaret.
8) Tomb of King Edward iv (1461-1470 and 1471-1483) and his Queen, Elizabeth Woodville. King Edward had the chapel built.
13) The Royal Vault. Beneath a slab in the floor of the Choir is the opening to a large crypt into which Monarchs are lowered at their funeral. For many, it has been a temporary resting place while their permanent tomb was being constructed. Among those who still remain there are: King George iii (1760-1820), King George iv (1820- 1830), King William iv (1820-1837) and many other members of the Royal Family.
14) The tombs of King Henry viii (1509-1547) and Queen Jane Seymour, and King Charles i (1625-1649)
22) Tomb of King Henry vi (1422-1461 and 1470-1471)
23) Tomb of King Edward vii (1901-1910) and Queen Alexandra.
I was unable to take my own photographs in St George’s Chapel, due to a policy of ‘no photography’ but as you will see from the links below, it is surprising what photographs can be obtained from other sources.
The tomb of King Edward vii (1901-1910) and Queen Alexandra.
The tomb of King George V (1910-1936) and Queen Mary.
Buried beneath the black marble slab are King George vi (1936-1952), Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and the ashes of Princess Margaret.
Above: The Royal Mausoleum at Frogmore and the royal burial ground. Again, although photography is forbidden inside the Mausoleum, the tomb and sarcophagus of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) lying on the left side of her husband and Consort, Prince Albert (1861) can be viewed by clicking on this link.
Below: the graves of King Edward viii (uncrowned, abdicated 1936 and re-titled thereafter ‘Duke of Windsor’) and his wife, Wallis Simpson.
