Old Photograph Chapel Dunecht House Scotland

Old photograph of the Chapel at Dunecht House in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Alexander Lindsay, 25th Earl of Crawford died in 1880 and his body was stolen in 1881. His body had been removed from a burial vault within the private chapel but the removal of the body was not discovered until several months later after a note signed Nabob was received. After extensive searches the body was eventually found on 18 July 1882 near a gravel pit close to the house. The body was later transported to Haigh Hall and buried again in the family vault.
