British colonial officer nicknamed « Great Coffin »? (India, 19th century)

Recommended Posts



I’m conducting a particular research about a British commissioned officer who would have served in India in the second half of 19th century, who would have reached a rank of senior officer (at least), and whose nickname would have been "Great Coffin". That’s all I know (these informations come from family memory on my wife's side)...


On the off chance, could you please help me, or orient me to find the exact identity of this officer (assuming he existed)?


Thank you very much.


Best regards,



(from France).
