"RICHARD BUCKLEY LITCHFIELD, who died on the 11th of January 1903, is buried since the 13th of January 1903 in the English part of the Cemetery « LE GRAND JAS » in Cannes. The exact location of the grave is "Cimetière du Grand Jas, 18ème allée (ex-Protestant) n°44"." (Images were taken by Paul Leppard.)

Gwen Raverat in "Period Piece: A Cambridge Childhood" (1952) described him thus (quote) "He was a nice funny little man, whose socks were always coming down; he had an egg-shaped waistcoat, and a fuzzy, waggly, whitey-brown beard, which was quite indistinguishable, both in colour and texture, from the Shetland shawl which Aunt Etty generally made him wear round his neck."
