There has never been a stone on this grave but I thought that the following newspaper article would be of interest.

Dumfries and Galloway Standard
3rd June 1899

Military Funeral at Dalry.- The remains of Private John McCulloch, E Coy: Galloway Rifles, were interred with military honours on Sunday. There was a good muster of Volunteers from New-Galloway station and New-Galloway. They were joined by the Dalry section opposite the Lochinvar Hotel, and marched to the residence of the deceased under command of Lieut. James Stewart, Dalry. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Thomas Walker, chaplain of the company, and was very impressive. The coffin was carried shoulder high by six members of the Company to the place of interment. After a short service at the grave the usual three volleys were fired over the open grave, and the Company was then marched back and dismissed. Col. J.M. Kennedy was also present. There was a large concourse of people to witness the proceedings. Private McCulloch was a fine specimen of a Galloway Volunteer, and was highly respected by his comrades. He was one of the five chosen to represent the company in London on the occasion of the Queen’s Jubilee.
