The death of George Warren registered for July 1857 is Q3 in Kensington; the will accompanying this gives him as George Warren late Lieutenant Colonel in Her Majesty's Service of Kensington, proved 14/08/1857. This George Warren was commander of the 2nd Bengal Europe Regiment ('who had by this time recovered from the wounds he had received at the capture of the fortress of Ghuznee'), raised in 1839.
