Jonathan Owen


Claro Times - 27th March 1915

Among the wounded, who arrived on the train ambulance on Monday, was Jonathan Owen of the 1st Grenadier Guards, who was suffering from severe shrapnel wounds in the leg. Gangrene set in after his arrival in Harrogate, and he died at the Grand Duchess George's Hospital, Tewit Well Road, on Thursday.

Yesterday the body was conveyed from Harrogate to the deceased's home in South Wales. The procession from the hospital to the station was headed by the band of the Yorkshire Hussars playing the "Dead March" from "Saul". The Grand Duchess with Baron and Baroness Stoeckl were among the following, the Baron wearing the uniform of a Russian officer. The Mayor of Harrogate, wearing his chain of office, was also present.

Wreaths were sent by the Grand Duke and Duchess George, the Princesses Nina and Xenia, Baron and Baroness Stoeckl, the wounded soldiers at Tewit Well and Heatherdene Hospitals, and the nursing staff at Tewit Well Hospital.
