That's an interesting VC grave with a carving of the cross itself on the top.

The Citation for his award:

For courageous conduct when employed as a sharpshooter in the advanced trenches in the month of July, 1855; a Rifle Pit was occupied by two Russians, who annoyed our troops by their fire. Private McGregor crossed the open space under fire, and taking cover under a rock, dislodged them, and occupied the pit.

His cross is in the Royal Green Jackets Museum.
