The only woman buried in a military cemetery Zeytinlik. Mrs. Harley was a great friend and benefactor of the Serbian people. She came to Serbia as the head of a British medical mission. Died during her stay in the liberated Bitola (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), 7th March 1917 . During one of the many artillery bombardment of the city by German and Bulgarian artillery. In a sign of eternal gratitude, officers of the Supplemental command of the Serbian army raised her very handsome monument of white marble and cut stone with a large marble cross which dominates the whole plot.
