      Much of the north wall of the chancel beyond the choir seating is taken up by the Style monument, which was erected by Sir Thomas Style in 1626 in memory of his parents Oliver and Susan Style. Oliver Style was the son-in-law of John Bull. Oliver Style (1542 - 1622) purchased Wateringbury Place and lived there until his death at the age of 80 in 1622. He was the son of Humphrey Style, Charles Stuart’s cupbearer, whose memorial brass remains in Beckenham parish church. The figures on the monument have some of their old colour still left; that of Oliver Style is in a scarlet and ermine robe, Sir Thomas being dressed in armour. An extraordinary figure on this tomb is that of a partly cloaked skeleton with an angel, under an arch and among coloured flowers and cherubs, with the words: “death to me is an advantage; all men must die”, a good enough philosophy for skeletons! A ledger stone in memory of Sir Thomas Style has been moved from the chancel to the floor of the tower, and may be seen on request.
