Crundale, Richard (fl. 1281–d. 1293). English master-mason. He worked under Robert of Beverley at the Tower of London (1281–3), and in 1284–5 was at Westminster Abbey, where he succeeded Beverley as King's Chief Mason for London Works. He designed the Eleanor Cross at Charing Cross (1290—replaced by the later work by E. M. Barry), and the beautiful tomb of Queen Eleanor (d. 1290) in Westminster Abbey. His brother, Roger (fl. 1290–8), completed the Charing Cross, and worked with Nicholas Dyminge de Reyns (fl. 1290s) on the designs and making of the tomb of Queen Eleanor's viscera in Lincoln Cathedral (1291–4—destroyed) and the Eleanor Cross at Waltham, Herts. (which survives).
