"This beautiful Monument to the memory of Charles James Fox is of white marble, and originally stood in the North Transept, but now occupies the North-West angle of the Nave. The figure of the Negro represents the prominence which the abolition of the Slave-trade then occupied in the public mind."
The abbey is crowded with tombs and monuments to churchmen, scientists, writers, politicians and nobility. Most British monarchs are buried at Westminster Abbey and it has been the crowning place for all sovereigns since the 11th century.
