The Crichton is now a college, part of a university.  There is a graveyard behind it which would have ex patients and staff who died there.  Could be another place to search.  Famous people who were patients there included Conan Doyle's father and Spike Milligan.  The Crichton was a massive place and included an industrial unit, a market garden, a farm and also had the Nursing School there, and the laundries.  I believe there is a website which tells you its history but I don't know the address.
Where as lived @ kinghlom quay all my life and. Never Sen the graveyard nere the chrichtion
