Mary Wightman Ker is a forebear so would be most interested to see the gravestone. Many thanks.
I am requesting these for an elderly lady in my church (in Bath), who is a descendant of Sir James Spittal. Some time ago she visited the City Chambers and saw material relating to him there, but was unaware there is a gravestone in Greyfriars.
Firstly thanks for doing this. Sir James Spittal is the gt gt grandfather of my godmother who does not use the Internet but may be interested in me reading the inscription to her.
