Kolkata Scots cemetery exhibition
The Scottish Cultural Resources Network (SCRAN) has a new online exhibition on the Scottish cemetery at Kolkata, available at www.scran.ac.uk/news/news.php?id=457, though it looks to be accessible only if you have a subscription. The site was surveyed by the Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) a couple of years ago, and many headstone images etc are freely available to consult on the organisation's Canmore database, at www.rcahms.gov.uk/canmore.html.
If of further interest, I wrote an article about the Scottish cemetery at Kolkata and the RCAHMS survey in issue 5 of Discover my Past Scotland, April 2009 - the magazine, which is online, can be bought as a back issue at www.discovermypast.co.uk.
