    John Gray David Allan

    This gravestone marks not just the burial site of Marion Laurie but also that of her amputated leg, which was placed here in 1814. At this time there was no anaesthesia for patients and it’s thought that as many as 30% died either through shock or infection or from post-surgery complications. That Marion survived and lived for another 24 years says much about her resilience as the medical care she received.
