Ally:

Is there any identification of GD Serge's Staff members appearing in the photograph?

None that I recall. The description of the photo was merely "GD Elizabeth of Russia". Sorry.

there is no identification. Actually they are officers of the Preobrazhenskiy regiment, not Grand Duke's stuff members. I can identify some of them if you need.

I would like to know the identity of the person sitting in front with the black pointed beard. My Great Grandfather Peter Alexandrovich Basilevsky was an aide de camp to GD Sergei when he was Governor of Moscow and this gentleman resembles him. Thanks.

Yes, that man does resemble P.A. Basilevsky but he never was an officer of the Preobrazhenskiy regiment but the Hussar regiment as I remember and he retired long before the years in the picture (end of 1890s).

Presumably all the sisters with their respective husbands, and Ernst Ludwig by himself between marriages.

Poor Ernst being the odd man out. How awkward that must have been even if they probably didn't speak of it.

Today I stumbled upon this video by sand artist Kseniya Simonova and it just took my breath away! What a wonderful tribute to Ella!
