But Sir Julius died on May 21st, 1912, and Lady Wernher remained a widow throughout the Great War.

There were three Wernher children - Sir Derrick Julius (June 7th, 1889 - March 6th, 1948), Major-General Sir Harold August (January 16th, 1893 - June 30th, 1973) and Second-lieutenant Alexander Pigott (born January 18th, 1897), who was killed in action with the Welsh Guards at Ginchy on September 10th, 1916, during the battle of the Somme, and was buried in the Citadel Military Cemetery, near Fricourt.

On September 25th, 1919, Lady Wernher remarried and became Baroness Ludlow. Her new husband was Henry Ludlow Lopes, 2nd Baron Ludlow, who was born on September 30th, 1865, and also had a previous marriage.

During his visit to London the clothes were wanted. The only he tock occasion to the alarmist one in the r.ecrot was the head dressreports as to his condition. In other maker, who has since received a witch words, he has no taste for being pulled from Lady Ludlow.

Baron Ludlow died on November 8th, 1922, at the age of 57 in a horse riding accident. As he had no children, his title died with him.

 

On June 12th, 1920, Lady Wernher presented the Luton Hoo Memorial Park to the people of Luton in memory of her son killed in 1916. On December 10th,1922, she unveiled the town war memorial outside the Town Hall to all the men of Luton who gave their lives in the Great War.

Lady Ludlow died on November 30th, 1945, at 82 Portland Place, London.
