Henry Hawley Smart is said to have taken Whyte-Melville as one of his models when he set out on his career as a sporting novelist. When the Crimean War broke out, Whyte-Melville went out as a volunteer major of Turkish irregular cavalry,  but this was the only break in his literary career. By a strange accident, Whyte-Melville lost his life in whilst hunting; the hero of many a stiff ride meeting his fate in galloping quietly over a ploughed field in the Vale of White Horse. H hunts, he was buried in the churchyard of St Mary's, Tetbury, within a few feet of his property, Barton Abbotts.
It has been claimed that Whyte-Melville's death inspired the well-known hunting song "John Peel" - although John Peel was a real-life huntsman in the Lake District, the author of the lyrics, John Woodcock Graves , was a close friend of Whyte-Melville. After imbibing a quantity of alcohol at Whyte-Melville's funeral, Graves penned some verses in tribute to Whyte-Melville, set to the melody of a traditional folk song entitled, "Bonnie Annie".
At the instigation of his mother, Lady Catherine Melville, a memorial fountain was erected via public subscription to the memory of Whyte-Melville in Market Street, St Andrews, Fife in ;  standing at a height of approximately 14 feet, this three-tier cascading fountain was constructed using sandstone and Dalbeattie granite and features four marble plaques dedicated to Whyte-Melville - these include his bust, family coat of arms, the arms of the Coldstream Guards, and a memorial inscription.
His Songs and Verses first published by Chapman and Hall in went through several editions. His other works include:. Several of his novels are historical, The Gladiators being perhaps the most famous of them. Whyte-Melville far left playing in a foursomes golf match, c. Fairlie stands second from the right.
