Sacred to the memory of Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Fraser of The Royal Scots Regiment of Infantry who after a course of distinguished services in every quarter of the globe, fell by a random shot soon after heading and commanding with complete success the storning of the Pettah or outer works of the strong Fort of Asseer Ghur in the East Indies in the month of April 1819. He was highly esteemed in his Regiment and by its illustrious Colonel, the late Duke of Kent and Stratherne, and by the whole of the Army with which he served during the late war, and his death was equally lamented by all who were ever associated with him as a soldier or had the happiness to know him in private. And sacred also to the memory of his father and mother Captain Alexander Fraser, late Bunchegavy in this Parish who died upon the 2nd day of May 1814 and Janet Fraser his wife, daughter of Alexander MacGillivray of Aberchallader who died upon the 8th day of May 1791. Colonel Fraser by his will directed that a monument should be erected here by his executors to the memory of his father and mother. And the executors anxious to discharge the trust reposed in them by their Gallant relative and companion and friend, and at the same time to perpetuate his own memory in a spot concentrating the repository of the ashes of his forefathers have directed this monument to be placed here in the year of our lord 1822. Simon Fraser of Foyers Esq, John Fraser of Farraline Esq, Thomas Fraser of Gortuleg Esq, Alexander Fraser of Lincolns Inn Fields in the County of Middlesex Esq, and Simon Fraser of Montreal in North America Esq, Executors.
