Lombardic lettering on 19th Century tomb

Recommended Posts

Greg Yerbury

This lettering is around the entrance to the crypt of Edward Littleton (Baron Hatherton) in Penkridge completed in 1888. I have been looking for a font close to this for some time but I can't find one. I was wondering if anyone here can.
An online picture of the entire entrance is found here.
Thanks very much...

Two more suggestions, that, clearly sharing a common original inspiration, could perhaps be used together.

With numerals but wrong |T|H| (also narrow):

No numerals:

Of the few examples of numerals I saw, only some were at caps-height, even fewer maintaned the style and decoration of the letters, none had such a flat-headed |8|.
