On 24th July 1948, Dame Agnes Hunt died aged 81.
Agnes was truly a pioneering woman who left behind her an amazing legacy. In a memorial to her written shortly after her death it is said she ‘left an inspiration for others to carry out her vision’. Her ashes are interred at the graveyard in Baschurch.
NB: Although her funeral Order of Service says she was born in 1867, her birth certificate confirms that Agnes Hunt was born in 1866.
