James Sheridan Knowles: Choice of Glasgow as His Burial-Place

Knowles’s obituary is on page four of The Glasgow Herald, on Monday 8th December, 1862, and includes the following:


“Mr. Knowles died in England, and was by birth a native of the South of Ireland, yet he chose Glasgow as his place of

sepulture [burial], and he now lies among our most honoured dead.”
