In 1809, suddenly while on tour in Stamford, aged thirty-nine, of a waist measurement of 9 feet, 4 inches, and weighing 53 stone, Lambert died of an unknown cause. The wall of the inn where he was residing had to be dismantled to allow his body to be removed for burial thus where the previous name of this premises came from “hole in the wall”. His coffin had to be supported on wheels and it took twenty men to lower it down a ramp to the grave. Lambert is buried in St Martin’s Churchyard in the town.
