Photographs of Ada Ross Funeral

Contributor Annette Fulford has sent me a link that you may want to visit, as well. It shows photos of the funeral of Nursing Sister Ada Ross. I have not yet written an entry on Ross, but thought that you might be interested in the kind of response made by British communities to the deaths of nursing sisters. Here's the link:

For some background on Ada Ross, here is a quote from the Manitoba Free Press, August 8, 1918:

"Nursing Sister Ada Janet Ross, of the C.A.M.C., who died at the Canadian Nurses' Convalescent Hospital at Northwood, Buxton, Derbyshire, England, on July 12, was a graduate of the Winnipeg General Hospital. The deceased went to France almost with the first Canadian nurses, namely, in May 1915, and remained there for two years, when she was put on hospital ship duty between Canada and the Old Country. For some months prior to her death she had been doing work at Buxton."
