2024 Remembrance Day

On Friday 30th May 2024, we met at Greyfriars Kirkyard to celebrate the life of Mary Erskine.

She died on 2 June 1707 and was buried two days later in Greyfriars Kirkyard at the end of the section known as the Covenanters' Prison. This section is behind a locked gate and we are allowed entry annually.

We were welcomed by Caroline Crawford, Guild Vice-President and Paige Blair, School Captain read out the history of Mary Erskine. This was followed by a talk by Dorothy Sharp on the history of Mary Erskine and the School.

Thank you to all of those who attended and to the School who ensure that the grave is kept in good condition.

For those who are unable to visit the Kirkyard in person, you can learn more from their website.
