Biography and Notes

Theodosia learned her nursing at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford. She reached the grade of Sister and is seen to have been a 'Lady Nurse' in the Isle of Wight on the 1891 Census. She married firstly in Toronto in 1896 and joined Princess Christian's Army Nursing Service (Reserve) at some time, presumably betweem marriage and the outbreak of war. She was the great granddaughter of Lord Chief Justice Denman and re-married after Charles had been killed and became Mrs H M Vandeleur of Kings Mill House, South Nutfield, Surrey. She was disallowed from taking possession of Charles's medals because she had re-married.
