Lombardic lettering on 19th Century tomb

Recommended Posts

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...

Perhaps Initials Bergling A?

Alas no numerals, but that is the closer than I what I  have found thanks Riccardo.

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|.

It might work using the letters from one and the numerals from the other. Thanks.
