On this link you can find something on Auguste von Senarclens - Grancy's descendants with his wife Louise Otting und Fünfstetten.

Albert von Senarclens - Grancy (1847-1901), son of August, is mentioned somewhere as a German general-mayor. But it's interesting that but he died in Saint-Petersbourg and GDss Elizaveta Fedorovna, as well as her brother Ernst Ludwig, attended the funeral of Albert. Wonder if Albert was on friendly terms with them, and why he lived/died in Russia.

They were close to the Grancys.
Wihelmine and Marie had both been ladies-in-waiting to Princess Alice. As Ernst Ludwig stayed in Russia in 1901 the funeral might have coincidently fallen together with that visit. I don't think the he would have travelled especially for that occasion.

Yes, Ernst Ludwig was on his visit to Russia, it was Elizaveta who came from Moscow just for the funeral. I wonder how close they were to Albert and why he lived/died in St-Petersbourg. Or possibly they only paid respect to a member of the family close to their family...

A couple of points regarding the 'Senarclens' ancestry of the Battenbergs:
1)  Julia Haucke was the incumbent of the title of 'Princess Battenberg' - her husband was not mentioned in the letters patent - this seems strange as normally the husband would receive the honour. Historians seem to concur on this point and agree that the honour was given to her as Alexander was not recognised as a Hesse. He was eventually recognised as OF the 'House of Hesse', but not as the legitimate son of the then grandDuke
2) I am a Loriol descendant and my father was quite a good friend of Prince Philip. the latter always wrote and talked to him as 'cousin'. It is widely, but not generally, acknowledged that the Loriols cousin with the Mountbattens, especially in Switzerland where titles and ancestry does not count for much.

Does anyone have pictures of the children of Marie de Grancy who was a lady in waiting to Alice? I am especially looking for pictures of her youngest son.
