Memorial to Percy Bysshe Shelley by Henry Weekes, Christchuch Priory Church.  On July 8, 1822 less than a month before his 30th birthday, Shelley drowned in a sudden storm while sailing back from Livorno to Lerici in his schooner, the Don Juan. Shelley's body was washed ashore and later, in keeping with his unconventional views, cremated on the beach near Viareggio. His heart was snatched unconsumed, from the funeral pyre by friend Edward Trelawny, and kept by Mary Shelley.
