Angus Fletcher was a moderately successful sculptor. He exhibited various works at the Royal Academy between 1831 and 1839, including a bust of Charles Dickens, and there are still in existence busts of other personalities of his time, such as Felicia Hemans the poetess, and also William Wordsworth, and Margaret Davy, Angus's sister. He was responsible for the profile medallion of his Mother, Eliza, in Grasmere Church, as well as the carving on the headstone of Wordsworth's daughter, Dora Quillinan, in the churchyard, decorated with a border of ivy leaves and a lamb supporting a cross.
