Interestingly it is still possible to see the houses (in part at least) owned by the encumbents of the Suckling Chapel. Robert Garsett, who wears his Alderman's robes, was Sheriff in 1599 and lived in Garsett House. This property, also known locally as Armada House, has one surviving timber framed bracket ornately carved with the date 1589, the year after the Spansih Armada an event futher commemorated by a plaque depicting a galleon, moulded in plaster on the South gable wall. Unfortunately in 1898 part of the south wing was cut away to allow for the building of a new tramline. The only saving grace of this action was that it bought into view Suckling Hall previously home of the Suckling Family, now the site of Cinema City. The only portion of Francis Rugg's house that still survives is the inner entrance which has been preserved as part of the new Telephone Exhange in St Andrew's Street although it looks a little incongruous it's survival must be applauded.

Additionally there are a fine selection of monuments produced by the Norwich school including : Thomas Rawlin's works commemorating both Hambleton & John Custance and also the tablet dedicated to Richard & Margaret Dennison. Also Robert Page carved the tablet to the memory of Dr Thomas Crowe, where Noel Spencer describes the three cherub heads as being "the most delightful I have ever seen"
