A guide to the church has the following note about St Catherine's Chapel, a small area of the church hidden behind a curtain containing an organ, stacking chairs, an easel and a tomb.  There is also a framed description of the chapel on the wall.

St Catherine's Chapel:  A wooden floor was removed in the 1971 restoration revealing medieval tiles and a curious carved stone, possibly from a tombstone.  In this chapel is the organ of 1894, the remaining fragments of medieval glass, the 16C tomb of Elizabeth Frowick, later Coningsby, and the crimson Dossal dates as Italian 16C by the Victoria and Albert Museum and presented to the church by Mrs Walter Burns.

The church guide suggests that Elizabeth Frowick's grandfather was Robert Knolles who in turn was the grandson of Thomas Knolles who it is thought built North Mymms Manor.
