The burial vaults in the Henry VII Lady Chapel

What once was Cromwell's Tomb in Westminster Abbey - Cromwell had ruled in such grandeur,there was uncertainty about whether he would be a new 'Moses or new monarch'. Many speculated he would soon be crowned king,but he died of malarial fever in September 1658 aged 59 and was interred in the Abbey in a fine ceremony modelled on the funeral of James I.He was buried in the same vault as his son-in-law,Henry Ireton,a signer of the death warrant of Charles I.
