Summary

Welford Road Cemetery – Leicester Women

On this short walk through Welford Road Cemetery we consider the lives of some of Leicester’s extraordinary women of the 19th and 20th centuries who are at rest here. Some stand out for their courage, service to others, championing women’s rights or for literature, while two lost their lives in tragic circumstances. This route includes some steps.
