Major Cartwright


Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918

The wedding of Miss Ellen Ogden, only daughter of Mr and Mrs J R Ogden, The Bungalow, Harrogate, and Major Cartwright, MC, of the York and Lancaster Regiment, son of Mr and Mrs Sam Cartwright, of Gwespyr, Otley Road, Harrogate, was solemnised at Wesley Chapel on Monday. The bridegroom received his commission in 1914, was at Gallipoli, and was wounded at Suvla Bay. He went to France in 1916 and was wounded at Thiepval. He was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry in the field at Passchaendale Ridge. His brother, Captain Cartwright, was in the same regiment.

[Details of service]

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very sweet in a dress of ivory satin trimmed with real French lace, sent over from France by the bridegroom. She had on a veil of Brussels lace and carried a lovely bouquet of white carnations and lilies of the valley.

Miss Alice Cartwright, sister of the bridegroom, was the bridesmaid, and she was daintily dressed in white net over silk and had a small veil of Brussels net with silver trimmings. She carried a beautiful spray of parma violets.

The bride was also attended by two pages, Dennis Morritt Ogden and Lorna Roberts Ogden, nephew and niece of the bride, who were prettily dressed in white charmeuse satin. The little boy carried a cushion.

Captain T D Pratt, of the Duke of Wellington Regiment, acted as best man.

The happy couple left later for Southport, where the honeymoon will be spent. They were the recipients of many congratulations.
