Description:In the middle of the back row is Nurse Jessie Elizabeth Price.

Jessie was born at Lichfield Lodges, Shugborough on 15 July 1876. Her father Joseph was a Waggoner on the estate. She trained as a nurse in Lancashire and was working as a Probation Nurse at Salford Union Infirmary at the time of the 1901 census. By 1911 she was Workhouse Nurse Superintendent at Bedford Union Workhouse. This photograph was probably taken at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield, where she worked during the early part of the First World War. Soon afterwards she worked at the Ministry of Pensions Hospital at Brindley Heath on cannock Chase. After she retired, she continued to live in one of the Lichfield Lodges until her death on 23 December 1963.
