The Sunne In Splendour

Apropos the discovery (or perhaps rediscovery to be more accurate) of the grave of Richard III, here is a carving on a font I photographed Sunday afternoon.

As you can see, it is the Sunne In Splendour, which was the badge of Richard III.  It is encircled by a chain of office which feature roses (the Yorkist white rose presumably).  Did Richard III order the installation of this font?

Perhaps he should be buried here.
