His death certainly seems to have struck a chord with the people of Ladysmith at the time.

the description and inscription match that tablet illustrated in B&W.
Begs the question, would this memorial have been moved from Stockport to Forest Peak?
The article in The Derbyshire Times (6th January 1900) includes the following: - "The Vicar of Peak Forest (the Rev George Rogerson) is executing the lettering and fixing."
The Royal Navy created a
Commander Egerton Prize
in 1901-- an annual award given to the Royal Naval Officer who, when qualifying for Gunnery Lieutenant, passed the best examination in practical Gunnery.
