Wonderful Women Tour: Arno’s Vale Cemetery 4th April 2023

Image preview What an interesting tour we had once again at Arno’s Vale cemetery!

We discovered the stories, lives, jobs, and place of rest of wonderful women. Mazzarina Emily Chute (1825-1878), theatre manager and actress; Ellen Jefferies née Sainsbury’s (1837-1917), the self made woman, catering entrepreneur and land owner; Joan Tuckett (1895-1957), early female solicitor, women’s rights activist and aviator; and some more of the wonderful women who contributed each in their own way to the history of Bristol, and now rest in this mesmerizing location.

Thank you to our guide and sunny weather was definitely a bonus. Thank you again to those who organised the interesting tour.
