In memory of Emmeline Pankhurst

BROMPCEM 032Flowers placed on the grave of the suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928), in Brompton Cemetery, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, on 16 January 2016. ¬†Although rather neglected, Pankhurst’s grave usually has some fresh flowers placed on it. ¬†The flowers here, white lilies, purple tulips and blue hyacinths, appear to have been selected to represent as far as possible the suffragette colours of purple, green and white.
