In John's gospel these people were there.
John 20:25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
This is what we are given concerning the death of Jesus. The soldiers made sure He had died and the signs of the blood and water indicate death.
John 20:33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. 36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,” 37 and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”
They did not see Him wake up later, but they knew He died and saw Him up and well 3 days later. It is not that He was hobbling around or had bandages all over Him to help heal the wounds.
Then after making all this up, they began to teach it to the Jews and the whole world even though they were persecuted.
