Crommelin, In the South Park Street Cemetery there is, or was, an inscription: "To the Memory of Charles Crommelin, Junr., Esq., October 17th at Anno Domini, 1788. Aetat 30." One cannot help conjecturing that the Charles Crommelin, Junr., of this inscription was the son of the old man who died in the December of the same year at the age of 81. A grandson of the latter, Charles Russell Crommelin, was Secretary to the Government in Bengal at the close of the 18th century, and in the South Park Street Cemetery there was an inscription To the Memory of Mrs. Juliana Crommelin, wife of C.R. Crommelin, who died 2nd November 1795, aged 25. Major G.R.Crommelin, C.B., is one of the officers commemorated in the Mausoleum 'to the memory of the Brave' at Barrackpore; On page 53 of "A Guide to the India Office Records 1600-1858" by William Foster, C.I.E., under "Consultations" chapter, there is reference to Mr. C.R.CROMMELIN being appointed to the Public (Sub-Secretaryship) about 1799.
