gardener, of influenza + pneumonia

Note 3

email from June Underwood + death cert:

"I got this Death Certificate in the hope that his details could be added to CWGC. Unfortunately this won’t be possible as he died of influenza, rather than any illness or injury associated with active service in WW1. His wife was buried the same day, so it would seem that she too died of flu. ":

Note 13

From the Buckingham Advertiser and North Bucks Free Press, Saturday November 30, 1918

The second part of the cutting reads:

“… – A particularly sad scene was wit-

nessed in the village on the 15th inst., in the

presence of the Washington car passing through

the Main Street carrying two coffins containing

the mortal remains of Shugborough Newitt

Steeden, aged 29, and Elsie Louisa, his wife, aged

30, both having passed away the same night,

leaving two little children – a girl, 6 years old,

and a boy, aged 4. Deceased was a grandson of

the late John Steeden, of Tingewick, and his

wife a daughter of Ebenezer Newman Pollard.

He joined Kitchener’s Army in the early days of

the war, was drafted into the Oxford and Bucks

L.I., and sent to France, where after a few

months he was severely wounded, his life being

despaired of for some time. Treated in Glasgow

Hospital with every care, after a year or so he

was discharged about 12 months since, the marks

most visible of his wounds being a stiff knee and

the loss of two fingers. He was a gardener in the

employ of Lady Lawrence at Chetwode Manor

previous to the war, and only a week before his

death he removed from Tingewick to The Gables,

near Winslow, to act in the same capacity with

Lady Addington, the floral wreath sent by the

latter being one of the many floral tributes to

the memory of two lives so swiftly removed from

us. Of a cheerful and obliging nature, deceased

had many friends. Symbolical of a union ex-

pressed in life, one grave contains both husband

and wife. The Rev. P.E. Rayner (Rector) offi-

ciated
