Stone: Culloden prisoners
Erection date: 16/7/1998
Culloden Memorial Stone
In memory of the Scottish prisoners from the battle of Culloden in April 1746 who died either on the Thames prison ships or within the Fort.
Names of the Jacobites who died are listed within Tilbury Fort.
Unveiled on 16th July 1998 by Michael Martin MP, Deputy Speaker, House of Commons.
Port of Tilbury, London
This granite stone was recovered from Culloden Moor, site of the battle. We visited the fort but didn't see the list of the Jacobite names. Perhaps it's available to those who ask.
2018: Bonny Jean Boyle of Glasgow sent us this link Stop Culloden Development. Bringing a stone from the Moor to London as a memorial is one thing, but building "An intimate and extremely luxurious development of just 16 stunning and spacious 4 and 5 bedroom detached homes." on the Moor is quite another. The campaign has a Facebook page.
