Livingstone Gravestone Plaque


A few weeks ago, I posted about gravestones being found in the grounds of the Livingstone Centre, relatives of David Livingstone which were lying in the woods overturned.

Well, recently, Alex Rochead shared these photos showing a small plaque in the centre grounds recognising the stones and also took a few photos of further gravestones which were in the area. The plaque likely dating from the 1960 or 70’s, mentioned the stones were taken from the old Blantyre Works Cemetery and record the names of two members of Livingstone Family.

A few weeks ago, I identified one of the stones was Livingstone’s aunt. However, the other, as pictured below, is much more difficult to identify.
