  • Peace. Only peace & tranquility here. Eminent persons of Calcutta rest in peace here.
  • The lower Circular Road Cemetery is another piece of history that deserves immediate and focused conservation efforts. While some of the areas are quite well maintained, a large section of the area is in shambles. Many of the earlier plots have been resold for new interments. In this manner, history has been erased permanently. The cemetery office does not not have any system of keeping a record of the persons interned here - making the task of locating a particular grave extremely difficult. Some of the older graves that required special care and protection are those of William Coates Blaquire (Police Magistrate, Translator and eminent intellectual of the East India Company period) and Mrs Emily Eyre,( wife of Vincent Eyre who was involved in the first Anglo Afghan War) . The cemetery should immediately undertake measures to preserve history.
