Francis Milman 1869 - 10 May 1891

Francis Robert Everard Milman died at sea aged 22, on the ship Waimate, and was buried in Dunedin two days later. The Waimate was a clipper ship that made eight trips to Port Chalmers. We assume that he died when the ship was close to port. Francis was the eldest son of Lt Colonel E. S. Milman, who was the well-regarded governor of Holloway and Newgate prisons in London. There are no records as to how Francis (or Frank) came to be buried here, how his monument was funded, or who tended the rose and trees as they were established.
