The inscription reads: "Here rests the body of Prince Louis-Clovis Bonaparte, the only son of His Highness Prince Louis-Lucien Bonaparte, the celebrated philologist. Endowed with a warm heart, he was beloved by all his friends, inheriting much of the talent of his distinguished family. He gave promise, attaining eminence as a civil engineer, when death cut short his career in the 36th. year of his age. He was born the 11th. of February 1859 and died the 14th. of May 1894. On his soul sweet Jesus have mercy. Beloved in life, in death he is not forgotten." Prince Louis-Clovis, who is buried immediately to the North of his father, was married twice: firstly, on the 30th. May 1888 in Douglas on the Isle of Man, to Rosalie Barlow; secondly, on the 14th. October 1891, to Laura Elizabeth Scott of London (3rd. July 1872-13th. April 1953.) It is possible that one or both of these ladies may be buried next to him, but not one word on the adjacent grave is legible.
