Compton Cemetery Chapel is a grade I listed building, created by Mary Watts (1849-1938) between 1894 and 1904. This new book on the building is a guide to the symbolism of the glorious Arts and Crafts patterns that decorate its interior and exterior. Mary's book, "The Word in the Pattern", which outlined her ideas for the symbols, along with the sources that she drew upon, forms the basis of the text. Illustrating all the decorative detail of the chapel, it shows the richness of meaning with which Mary infused its imagery. This guide makes Mary's ideas clear to all who wish to know the meanings of the striking figurative and abstract symbols that adorn the building.
