Reading Roger Lancelyn Green's Tellers of Tales* a few months ago piqued a latent interest in Andrew Lang, and discovering that he was buried in the grounds of St. Andrews Cathedral set me on a hunt for his grave.
I'd drawn a blank in previous wanderings round the cathedral precincts, but this afternoon I asked the gentleman in charge of the visitor centre if he could help. He had no knowledge of the grave, but with reference to a registry pertaining to the main cemetery we concluded that what I sought was in the Eastern cemetery, though beyond that there was no clue to its whereabouts.
Suffice to say I searched systematically and eventually came upon it. While this may be of scant interest to Cornflower readers, I thought I'd publish my findings here by way of public service posting, so for anyone who shares my fascination for such things or who has, like me, fruitlessly scoured the internet for pictures and information, I can tell you that the grave is on the right hand side of the path which runs down by the wall on the sea side, and it's the fifth plot from the bottom of the hill.
