Photo's of his wife Amelia and daughter Beatrice (who erected the monument you included) I have attached their portraits. Their birth and death details are given below:-

Amelia nee Samson Nairne
Born 1840 at Weymouth, Dorset, England
Died 13 Jan 1927 at Wimbledon, London, England

Beatrice Inez Jerome Cafe McLeod Nairne
Born 17 Sep 1865 at Umballa or Ambala Bengal,​ India
Died 1 Dec 1943 at A6 Queen Alexandra's Court, Wimbledon, Surrey, England

It might interest you and other viewers that Beatrice was born in India where Capt Nairne was stationed before serving in South Africa. Records state that she was baptised on 
20 Nov 1865 Umballa, [Ambala] Bengal, India. This would have been at Saint Paul's Church in Ambala Cantonment, which was built by the British in 1857 and was the Cathedral of the British Army. (It might seem strange that Bengal is in southern India and Ambala is in northern India, but the Presidency of Bengal included different regions at various times, and at this time extended to Punjab and most of Northern India.)

As I am sure you know, the 94th Regiment was posted to Madras in 1839 and served in that Presidency for fifteen years, during which time it had some action in the Mappila riots.

Later in October 1857 the 94th was ordered to Karachi, from where it was afterwards transferred to Peshawar in the North-West Frontier region and in other parts of India and Aden, in the Yemen, until 1868. I believe that Captain Nairne served in India during this second period as Ensign [Stanford. Norman McLeod Nairne, Gent., to be Ensign, by purchase, vice Farrer. Dated 19th December, 1862 see 1 below]; and as Lieutenant [94th Foot—Lieutenant Stanford Norman McLeod Nairne to be Adjutant, vice Lieutenant H. W.Melliss, who has exchanged to the 4th West India Regiment. Dated 2d January 1869, see 2 below.] 

On 26 May 1874 the Battle Honours and Distinctions of the old 94th were granted to the regiment. The following year, in 1875, the regiment adopted the diced band to their shako (the distinguishing mark of Lowland Scottish regiments) and was allowed to revive the Elephant and the Indian and Peninsular honours of the old 'Scotch Brigade'. (ref Wikipedia.) The Elephants appear on the stone monument commemorating the 94th at Bronkhorstspruit.

As you know Capt Nairne fought with the regiment in the Zulu War in 1879 and was killed in action in the First Boer War in 1880.
