Person Male Born 23/4/1564 Died 23/4/1616
Born and died in Stratford-upon-Avon. His birth date is often given as the 23rd, the same date as his death, but all that is actually known is that he was baptised 3 days later, on the 26th. Even his date of death seems a little uncertain. The 23rd also happens to be St George's Day, for the patron saint of England. Neat.

2021: We had to change the image on this page because new information had come to light. the Guardian reported: "The effigy above his grave in Holy Trinity church in Stratford-upon-Avon was thought to have been installed several years after his death in 1616 and, as a posthumous memorial, not an actual likeness. .... But new research has found that the bust was in fact modelled from life by a sculptor who knew him."
