I have spent a bit of time trying to locate the grave of
Colonel William Dunbar 2/24th in the hope of visiting and paying respects.
Most of my successful grave visits have come about by using the excellent section on this forum but for this one I had to do a lot of more in-depth detective work.
I tracked his grave down by contacting the local council and they sent me a map of where the grave could be found. When I visited the graveyard I found no trace of the gravestone or grave.
I wrote back to the council and they have suggested it could be possible to lay a flat memorial headstone or a marker in roughly the area of the grave.
I am waiting for a response back but I would imagine this would not be done for free by the council!
Could anyone suggest my next port of call? Royal Regiment of Wales/SWB museum?

Hello JCAWG,

I take it you tracked him down to the Calton Burial Ground in Edinburgh? I visited there back in 2009 & again a few months ago in case I'd missed the headstone, but still nothing there.

Unfortunately, unless you can persuade a local mason to donate a memorial for free it may have to be a case of raising the funds via donations.

Regards,

Tim
