Mummified Remains at St James


Mummified Remains at St James

Mummified remains of a medieval local are housed here.

Location: Church of St James, Garlickhythe in Upper Thames, EC4V 2AL

Description: The mummified remains (no longer on display) were of an unknown medieval gentleman nicknamed Jimmy Garlickhythe.

The inscription on his coffin read: Stop stranger, stop as you pass by. As you are now, so once was I. As I am now, you soon will be, so pray prepare to follow me.

It is much speculated that in life Old Jimmy may have been one of the six early Lord Mayors of London who were buried in the church.

A ghost of Jimmy has made several appearances since World War 2.
