From The Times, 15 January 1920
The death is announced at Nice from double pneumonia of Sir Alan Desmond Bagot, Bt.m of Levens Hall, Westmorland, in his 24th year.
Sir Alan Bagot was the only son of Lieutenant-Colonel osceline Fitzroy Bagot, M.P., and a great-great-grandson of the first Lord Bagot. Colonel Bagot was nominated to a baronetcy in January, 1913, but died in March of that year, before the patent passed the Great Seal, and was subsequently conferred upon his son. Sir Alan Bagot was educated at Eton and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, which he entered just before the war, and became lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards. While training in Dublin he saved a trooper whose horse had bolted. His own horse then bolted, crashed into a tree and dropped dead under him. Sir Alan's thigh was broken and this delayed his departure to France, where he subsequently served as an A.D.C. There is no heir to the baronetcy.

1. He appeared on the census in 1901 in 49 Montagu Square, Marylebone, London.
2. Boarder: 1911, Eton College, Eton, Berkshire. 10
3. He had an estate probated on 23 April 1920 in London.
