I'm not sure of the proper classification, but this style has been in use in the UK since at least the fifteenth century, primarily as used here...for memorial inscriptions.
It could be described as an alphabet based on versals. They are built-up letter shapes rather than calligraphic. Also, it is an 1870 take on the style as medieval versals usually use rounder, uncial forms of E, N and M etc.
Gothic revival versals perhaps. Would 1870 be early Arts & Crafts?
Gothic revival versals looks good to me, thank you.
Yes, 1870 would be early Arts & Crafts.
