Another casualty of the times was William Lloyd, Ranger at Satara in 1920. Satara was so remote in those days it could only be reached on foot or horse back. Lloyd, his young wife, and three small children lived there in complete isolation. Lloyd succumbed to pneumonia, and died shortly thereafter.

His wife managed to send a messenger to Stevenson-Hamilton, who travelled to Satara with due haste. When Stevenson-Hamilton arrived at Satara, she had already buried Lloyd under a tree close to the house. William Lloyd's grave is still at Satara next to the road from the camp, and the area Ranger's house.
