Albert Benz died 1901

In Loving Memory
of
ALBERT BENZ
Who died at Lucknow
on xx June ? 1901
Born 22? xxxxx

According to Fibis.org
Albert Benz married Victoria Vanspall
on May 19, 1862. Place: Mercara
She was was the 3rd daughter
of Peter George Vanspall
The most common material used in
construction of monuments was definitely
sandstone followed by marble, whereas,
the economy class, the graves covered 
 with plaster had the name etched into the
 plaster.
There was another grave constructed
from the same material where I was
unable to identify a single letter. Two or
three other monuments were similar to this one.
 This material seems to have been used for a 
short period, alongside stone and
was then discontinued for whatever
reason. This appears to be a mixture
of fine pebbles with whatever they used 
as cement. Colour would have
made this a mosaic.
In the 1990's for a short while mosaic
was used for graves and again, like
the above, was discontinued when
the demand for marble and granite
increased. 
The supply of these materials increased
has along with the development of
the city.

youth and that a brother of Mr Rodericks' had drowned in the Gomti while
swimming. That would have been in their young days.)

George Leslie Alfred Cummings died 1955


HERE LIETH ALL THAT COULD DIE OF
GEORGE LESLIE ALFRED CUMMINGS
                  E.D.B.A (G.I.A.)
OF LA MARTINIERE COLLEGE, LUCKNOW
SON OF JAMES CUMMINGS of ARMACH, IRELAND
AND GRANDSON OF THOMAS CUMMINGS OF
THE CENTRAL INDIAN CAMPAIGN OF 1857, WHO
WAS SUDDENLY CALLED TO THE HIGHER SERVICE
ON 29TH AUGUST 1955.
"HE IS NOT DEAD BY LIVETH"
TILL WE MEET AGAIN, GOD BLESS YOU DARLING
"DAD"
DEEPEST LOVE FROM GIRLIE, BUN AND BABE

George Cummings was Vice Principal at La Martiniere College.
His son was a student in the institution.

(Blogger: I was five years old when Mr Cummings passed away
at 19 Lawrence Terrace, the Carter residence. This was confirmed 
recently by Ian Carter who lives in Europe. I felt this was the 
first funeral I remember witnessing. There were at least three others
Constance Grace Bowmer. Mr GN Pannas and Thomas Clements so
it just mightn't have been so.)


From La Martiniere College "Constantia" of 1955 (or 1956)

George Alfred Leslie Cummings was born on the 14th October was born on the 14th October 1893 and was educated at Bishops School, Poona. He joined the staff of La Martiniere College, Lucknow, on the 1st March 1924 and retired on the 10th May 1955, having served the College for just over thirty-one years.
While working at the College he was sent for training and took the L.T. in 1927. He married the following year and his children Desmond and Patricia, were born and reared on the Martiniere Estate.
Mr Cummings was senior history master for a number of years and generations of boys will remember his lessons on Ancient and Modern History which he taught to Intermediate Classes. At various times, he was housemaster of all the College Houses except Lyons.
On the 10th January 1952 he was appointed Vice-Principal, which post he filled till his retirement. During Mr Douitre's absence in the USA he officiated as Principal.
Outside the class-room, Mr Cummings was keenly interested in all games and was himself a renowned hockey player, and as recently as two years ago, when he was sixty,showed what he could do on the cricket field. He was very interested in shooting and was an outstanding shot. His hobbies were natural history and philately and he possessed a magnificent stamp collection. He was commissioned into A.F.I. in 1928 and for his services was awarded the Efficiency Decoration.
Mr Cummings was a man of the highest principles and his sense of fairness and justice will be remembered by all who knew him. He was always a champion of Anglo-Indian masters and their rights. His genuine fondness for children was proved by his great popularity with the boys.
It was with deep regret that we heard of his sudden death on the 29th August 1955, so shortly after his retirement. To Mrs Cummings, Desmond and Particia, our sincere sympathy: we felt we had lost a friend.
