Reasons why the image for this monument was requested

I have had great difficulty in finding where this particular gravestone is to be found. I have taken many photographs in the past, and with the greatest help from the staff. But there is now a couple of very suspicious characters in place there, who have menaced me on my recent visit to find caird's stone. I found the secretary's office and he sent me a compliment slip with the location plot 270, section NN, but where it is I do not know, without a general map of the various sections. My purpose is to give details of Edinburgh University professors, which no one else seems to have thought of doing. Some of the best graves which had bronzes have been stolen? or perhaps removed by the self same staff, it is possible, I suppose.
Hello, I believe (well fairly sure) that he is my Great Grandfather and I am based in Australia, so have never visited this site. It would be of utmost interest to myself and my sister to have a look at the photo as we have inherited some books that he wrote for medicine and have been looking through old family bits and bobs this evening, whilst visiting my sister in NZ. Sadly our father passed quite a few years ago, so tricky to ask questions now. Anyway, I would really appreciate if this could be sent through. However I am genuinely surprised that someone has taken the pic of his headstone and uploaded it. Most interesting. Many thanks and regards, Ailsa
