St. George Stephen Tyndale McClellan1

M, #210, b. 23 April 1909, d. 31 December 1938
     St. George Stephen Tyndale McClellan was born on 23 April 1909. He was the son of John William Tyndale McClellan CMG and Edith Doyle Sewell. St. George Stephen Tyndale McClellan died on 31 December 1938 in Grindelwald, Switzerland, at the age of 29.1

News of the death in Switzerland of Mr. St. George Stephen Tyndale McClellan was telephoned to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. T. McClellan, at their home, The Cottage, Horsmonden, on New Year's Eve.
The last victim of an Alpine accident in 1933, Mr. McClellan lost his life at noon on Saturday in the Bernese Oberland.
He was attempting the traverse between the Kleine Scheidegg and the Mannlichen, above Wengen, with a group of ten English and Belgian tourists. A well-known Swiss Alpinist preceded the party, and finding the snow dangerous warned them not to follow him. Mr. McClellan apparently did not hear the warning and went forward on his skis.
He was swept away by an avalanche and his body was recovered after two hours search in six feet of snow.
"He loved the mountains and it was the way he would have chosen to die," wrote one of the many friends who shared with Mr. McClellan's family in their grief. Another wrote: "It was a wonderful death, swift and easy - a sudden rush of whiteness and then a great peace." Mr. McClellan was known in Horsmonden as a very able tennis player. He had an agreeable personality, and his parents have received innumerable letters couched in the highest terms of affection and admiration.
Mr. McClellan, who was on holiday at Horsmonden only last autumn, was born at Nairobi. Kenya Colony, on St. George's Day. April 23, 1909. He was educated at Chillon College, Switzerland, and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, where he took an Honours degree in History in 1931.
Choosing teaching as his profession, he tutored privately in England for a few years, and in the autumn of 1936 took a post as assistant coach at Chateau d'Oex. Switzerland. After two happy years of congenial work in the country he loved so well, he had just been appointed to a mastership at Chillon College when the accident occurred which ended his short career.

In accordance with the parents' wishes, a service was arranged in the English Church at Grindelwald on Monday night, when prayers were offered by the Rev. Selwyn Cox and Mr. Gilbert played the organ. Mr. Henri Graf, one of Mr. McClellan's Swiss ski-ing friends, helped to carry him into the church, and several other in friends were present. On Tuesday morning there was a most impressive service at Grindelwald. which was attended not only by every adult visitor in the hotel at which he was staying, but also by many friends from Switzerland and France.
The bearers were Mr. Gottfried Bohren, chief of the guides. Mr. Robert Schlee, Mr. Henri Graf and Mr. Hans Hauser.
The service was choral and included the hymns "O God, our help" and "Sun of my soul." Mr. Gilbert played Chopin's Funeral March and the Nunc Dimitis as the cortege left the church.
Among the 57 people present were Mr. King, principal of the Chateau d'Oex. and Mrs. King.
Wreaths were sent on behalf of his mother and father, Cherry and John. Mr. and Mrs. King, the Hanser Famlly and his friends at the hotel.
The cremation took place at Berne to a moving organ accompaniment, and was attended by Miss Copland, Mr. John Moore, Mr. Hans Hauser, Mr. Schlee, Dr. and Mrs. T. J. Drakeley and Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Knocker, of Southborough. Kent.
The ashes were flown over from Switzerland on Wednesday by Mr. Schlee, leader of the winter sports party to which Mr. MrClellan was attached.
The interment took place at Brenchley yesterday (Thursday), when the Vicar (the Rev. A. P. McNeile) officiated. The service included the 24th Psalm and Mr. Walter Neal played two compositions by Bach, of whose whose music Mr. McClellan had been very fond.
The immediate mourners were Mr. J. W. T. Mcclellan. C.M.G. and Mrs McClellan (parents). Brig.-General J. W. S. Sewall, C. B., C.M.G., and Mrs. J. W. S. Sewell, Colonel E. P. Sewell. C.M.C., D.S.O., and Mrs. E. P. Sewell, Mrs. Algernon P. Sewell and Lady Cave (uncles and aunts, Mr. Douglas Sewell, Miss Olive Sewell and Mrs. Shirley Knocker (cousins).
Mr. J. E. McClellan. a younger brother, who is in Zanzibar, was not able to attend.
Others present included Brig.-General O. E. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Bowring, Mr. and Mrs. Bertram Bridges, Mrs. Morley, Mr. F. Locket, Mr. and Mrs. E. Meeres, Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Philpott, Mr. F.
