Heritage Open Days: Remarkable Women of Berkhamsted

18
Sep
Wednesday 18th September 2019 at 4:30pm
Free

A hundred years ago a new sort of ‘People Power’ was emerging as the first woman MP was elected to Parliament. Rectory Lane Cemetery has its own heroines too …

Elaine Mercer, Rectory Lane Cemetery’s Communications Officer is inspired by the lives of some of the women buried here. Join her tour to hear about the women of the town who made an impact in Berkhamsted and some further afield over the last 150 years.

Learn about an Innkeeper, a ground-breaking editor, an innovative dairy farmer, a philanthropist, a benefactress, a telephonist, a WW1 nursing Matron and an actress who became a well-known soap favourite. Hear also about a woman who was destined to play a part on the international stage who used this Cemetery to aid her education.
