Beginning with the mathematician Mary Somerville (1789–1872), who was the first woman to receive more than a cursory death notice in The Times, this volume draws on the newspaper’s archives to present 125 obituaries. Among the women are writers, artists, musicians and actors, scientists and scholars, politicians and royalty, arranged chronologically from 1872 to the death of Alice Herz-Sommer, the concert pianist and Holocaust survivor, in 2014. Foreword by Lucy Worsley.
