In memory of THOMAS CARRIGAN who was killed by falling from a …….?
On board H.M.S. ‘Lord Warden’ and was buried at sea
July 15th 1874 aged 25 years and 3 months
The above is dedicated to his memory by his shipmates as a token of respect
H.M.S. ‘Lord Warden’, Mediterranean



National Maritime Museum: http://www.nmm.ac.uk/collections/explore/object.cfm?ID=TXT0019

HMS 'Lord Warden' was built at Chatham and was the heaviest wooden ship ever launched. With her sister ship 'Lord Clyde', she was the last of the broadside ships. She was deployed against left-wing Spanish forces in 1873, also serving in the Mediterranean and Channel. She was broken up in 1889.

Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Lord_Warden_(1865)

HMS Lord Warden was the second and final ship to be completed of the Lord Clyde class.

She was heavier than her sister, HMS Lord Clyde by about 360 tons; partly because she carried heavier machinery and was fitted with a poop, and partly because the wood used for the construction of Lord Clyde was, as it transpired, incompletely seasoned. The two ships differed in appearance in that Lord Warden had a clipper bow incorporating a submerged ram, while Lord Clyde had a standard ram bow.

Apart from the fact that Lord Clyde was built using incompletely seasoned wood, which became infected with fungus and caused her early sale out of the service, the major difference between the two sister-ships was in their engines. Lord Warden had a three-cylinder engine, in which the mechanical strains and reactions were balanced, giving some eighteen years of essentially trouble-free service; Lord Clyde had a two-cylinder engine, the working of which led to oscillation beyond the ability of the hull to absorb, leading in turn to the wearing-out of the machinery.

Lord Warden was regarded as being one of the worst rollers in the battle-fleet, second only to her sister, Lord Clyde.

Lord Warden was the heaviest wooden ship ever built by any nationality, largely of course due to the weight of her armour and her engines.

The stone you have here from the 'Auld Aisle' is that of the family of James Graham of Kirkintilloch.

James had served earlier in the war in the A.S.C., had been slightly wounded and then released from service. He was then employed in some form of ammunitions work. Follwing the German offensive in early 1918, he was recalled to the HLI.

I have no information on Joseph Graham but as far as I am aware they were not related.
