Subject: Tune Req: The Duke of Grantham
From: Thompson

William Graves, in his autobiographical book on growing up in Deyà with his father, Robert Graves, describes his father singing a song to him to the melancholy tune of The Duke of Grantham while he was in hospital after being knocked off his bicycle by someone taking a bend on the wrong side.
But what is this tune? An earlier Mudcat thread suggests it might be a song about the Duke of Grafton, but I can't find that either.

Try "Six Dukes Went a 'Fishing" which details the discovery of the body of The Royal Duke of Grantham who it was suspected was murdered by his political enemies. It then goes into detail regarding the preparation of his body for his funeral and then the funeral itself. The song can be found in the Penguin Book.

Well if Mike and I are not correct this one has certainly beaten me :-)
