      It would appear that Louisa Jordan (died from typhus in 1915, in Serbia)

      This February, Kragujevac, a city in central Serbia, marked a hundred years since the death of Dr Elizabeth Ross and other members of the British medical missions who lost their lives while aiding the Serbian people in the Great War. The annual ceremony was attended by the ambassadors of the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, numerous dignitaries and local people.



      Miss Louisa Jordan, who went out to Serbia with the Scottish Women’s Hospital, has, we regret to say, succumbed to typhus fever at Kragujevatz. Miss Jordan, who was trained and subsequently held the position of Sister at the Crumpsall Infirmary, Manchester, volunteered to nurse Dr. Ross when he was struck down by typhus, and so contracted it herself. when she volunteered in December for service in Serbia She was working as a Queen’s Nurse at Buckhaven, Fifeshire.

      taken from the British Nursing Journal

      Louisa Jordan was born in Maryhill in Glasgow. She signed up with the SWH as a nurse in December 1914 and joined the 1st Serbian unit. She worked in Kragujevac and died of typhus. She is buried at Nis, Serbia. Further details can be found on Alan Cumming’s website at www.scottishwomenshospitals.co.uk
