The window and plaque are in St David's Church, Airmyn, near Goole, Yorkshire.






















In March 1900, he had been made Aide-de-Camp to the Lieutenant Governor of Bengal.

I'll add one of his younger brothers, Grosvenor Percy Hood, who was drowned in India, on 12th April 1904. This plaque is also in St David's Church, Airmyn. While at the church I asked where the Hood family were buried, but none of them were interred at St David's.



News has been received of the death by drowning, as the result of a boating accident at Agar, India, on April 12th, of Lieutenant Grosvenor Percy Hood, of the Central India Horse. Mr Hood was the youngest son of the Hon. A. F. and Mrs Hood, of Airmyn Hall, Goole, and was only 21 years of age. It will be remembered that Mr and Mrs Hood lost their eldest son in the Boer War.
