Captain Irby was buried in Saint Saviour’s churchyard in Torquay, the church is now used by the Greek Orthodox community, but the tombstone is still there. In addition to is tombstone, Captain Irby had a memorial plaque inside the church, it was checked in 1975. The inscription is exactly the same as the one on the tombstone.
May sincere thanks go to Senior Assistant Librarian Mark Pool of the Torquay Central Library, for providing me of the photographs of the graveyard on Saint Saviour’s churchyard in Torquay. .
