Graveyards in Ceylon: Kandy Region Vol IV

Price: £10.50
You Save: £6.50

A collection of memorials approx 750 and 761 burial plot records found in surveys and other written sources. The Kandy War Cemetery and the outlying districts of Gampola and Kurunegala are also included. Although several tombstones have been lost from an earlier survey circa 1910 many others not previously recorded were found in this later one. The inscriptions or records give an indication of its chequered past with many Cingalese names of Portuguese origin, Dutch burgers, Tamils and those of the British settlers principally soldiers and some planters. Although the kingdom of Kandy remained independent throughout the rule of the Portuguese and Dutch it eventually succumbed to the British in the early 19th century and became a garrison town. Its status recovered during World War II when it was designated the headquarters of South Asia Command for the Allied Forces.
