Mrs Fox's Grave (2007)

Charles James Fox is buried in Westminster Abbey; however, his wife Elizabeth (1750 -1842) is buried next to the north wall of St Peter’s Churchyard.
Over the years, members of the Society have cleaned her grave and painted the railings. Unfortunately, the inscription on her gravestone is very badly eroded, so with financial support from County Cllr Ray Lowther’s SCC member’s allocation, the Society arranged for a new tablet to be placed on her grave in Summer 2007.
