Sadly stolen from St.Mary’s church, Foy, Ross-on-Wye HR9 6QY has been a portion of a child’s medieval stone burial slab carved in bas relief with a female wearing a cloak. It measures 51cm. in length and tapers from 35cm to 29cm wide being 8.5cm thick.
In common with many churches in the area the entire contents of St.Mary’s has been described in detail, photographed and measured by the local branch of NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts) as well as being marked with Smartwater, the DNA forensic tracing system, which will have soaked well into the stonework. Any person who has any information should contact Hereford Police on the control room number which is 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. Hopefully with the detailed description, photographs and tracing system it will make the piece unsalable and it will soon be recovered.
