A few of the older memorials are in Latin, like this one for William Coke, Puisne Justice of the Supreme Court.  Coke had just arrived for the Criminal Sessions at Trincomalee when fatally struck at age 43 by dysentery.  A member of Christ Church, Oxford, he had earlier been a King's Scholar at Westminster School.
