Sacred to the memory of Francis William Grant Calder Esq. , Surgeon 2nd Regit of Royal Life Guards, London the much beloved son of Jane Calder who died at Elgin 1st April 1847 aged 35 years sincerely and deservedly remembered by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. As a useful member of society his loss will be deeply deplored. But by none so much as his bereaved widowed mother as he was to her a father, husband and most affectionate son. He stood high in the mark of his profession and very few….. He gave early promises of his usefulness and continued so up to the close of his early career. In the prime of his life he disappointed the hopes of many but it was ……by himself…of divine providence……
