Wee Davie




14 Jan 1878

Someone's darling lies buried here. "WEE DAVIE" (died 1878) The first burial in Waverley Cemetery's Roman Catholic section. An unidentified small boy, the victim of a sad accident. An entry in the Cumberland Argus 1917 WEE DAVIE. There's a little weather-beaten freestone headpiece near the entrance to the Waverley cemetery bearing the inscription, "Wee Davie." About 25 years ago a child of about four wandered into Oxford Street, where he was run down by a butcher's cart. When the driver picked him up the little fellow was unconscious. Presently his eyes opened, and answering a question he said his name was Wee Davie. In a few minutes he was dead. The butcher did all things possible to locate the babe's home, or find someone to whom he belonged, but without avail; and so he had him buried, comprehensively remarking under the "Wee Davie," "Somebody's darling lies buried here" information courtesy Mr Kevin Banister. .
