A couple of interesting grave markers from an old cemetery in, or near, Fort Canning Park, Singapore. From my visit in April, 2012.



Wiki states that "HMS Renard was a wooden screw sloop launched in 1856 and broken up in 1866."

Thanks Scona , great photos

These two sailors appear in the BACSA book Singapore: Early Cemeteries by Alan Harfield.

I checked this out by entering the names in the BACSA search

BACSA is the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia

Perhaps you may be prepared to offer BACSA copies of your two photographs?
