Buried Brompton Cemetery, London, on the 25th Feb 1884 - Compartment Dis 1 201ft x 97 ft
This is a common grave, very overgrown, and is somewhat difficult to pinpoint without the aid of a tape measure, and a stick to beat down the nettles - especially on a hot Saturday afternoon!
There are a couple of other burials in Brompton with a Rorke's Drift connection -
Charles Maxfield - (brother of Sergt Robert Maxfield 2/24th) is buried in Compartment J.
Charles completed 21 years with the 2nd Life Guards before his death in 1889. Another brother saw service with the Scots Guards, the Life Guards, (briefly), and finally the Royal Engineers.
Mary Priscilla French - wife of Corporal John Barker French 2/24th is buried in Compartment N
