The Elsie Inglis headstone is situated in Edinburgh’s Dean Cemetery. The stone itself is now in a poor state of disrepair and over the last few years various attempts have been made to improve the situation. It’s been a frustrating time for all like minded people who want to see the stone restored to its former glory.
However a fantastic gesture has been made by Scotmid Co-operative Funeral Director’s who, at a cost to themselves, will bring in a stone mason to have the stone reinstated so that future generations can appreciate the memorial.
It is hoped the works will be completed by early January 2014 and we plan to hold an unveiling ceremony of the restored stone.
