Memorial at the Old Cemetery, Kochi, Kerala, India commemorating Captain Charles Biddulph, RN, d. 1815

Old cemetery, Kochi (Cochin), Kerala, India, Rest of the World

'Charles Biddulph, Esq., Captain of H.M. ship Volage. He was second son of Sir Theophillus Biddulph of Burbury in Warwickshire and having made choice of the navy for his profession, he was brought up under the patronage of the late Admiral Sir Samuel Hood. Having after a life spent in the service of his King and country, just attained the rank of Post Captain, he fell a martyr to a pulmonary complaint caught in the execution of his duty at the early age of 28, and has left his country to deplore the loss of a most active, zealous and excellent officer and his relations and friends a most benevolent, truly upright and honourable man. He died off Cochin on the 20th of August 1815.'

Vessel: HMS Volage
