About this memory

2007 – who is buried there.

She was a very dedicated and courageous woman.

Inside the tribute paper that was handed out on the day it reads,
“We are met today to Glorify God and to remember with thanksgiving the life and works of Elsie Inglis and to remember the legacy that has left to the City Of Edinburgh as well as her service to allies in the First World War”

Elsie was born on the 16th August 1864. She was a Scottish doctor/surgeon, a suffragette and the founder of the Scottish Women’s Hospital.

I had my twins in the Elsie Inglis Hospital, in Spring Gardens, Abbeyhill, Edinburgh, just before it closed.
