Mausoleum set in Knebworth Deer Park

Last resting place of: Lady Constance Lytton, daughter of Robert, 1st Earl of Lytton, who continued the struggle for the emancipation of women engaged in by her grandmother Rosina and her great-grandmother Anna Wheeler. She never fully regained her strength from a illness bought on by this campaign and died in 1923 aged 54, but not before Parliament had passed a bill, in January 1918, giving women over 30 the vote. Inscribed on the mausoleum her family has left the following epitaph: “Endowed with a celestial sense of humour, boundless sympathy, and rare musical talent, she devoted the later years of her life to the political enfranchisement of women and sacrificed her health and talents in helping to bring victory to this cause”.
