Bath Abbey Memorials: Unknown Names

Bath Abbey is full of unusual memorials commemorating life stories which have never been fully told.

Over refreshments you’ll hear some of these stories, including:

  • The famous singer Anna Selina Storace who was Mozart’s friend and inspiration.
  • Donnett Mary Paynter, a heroine of the Nursing Yeomanry in the First World War.
  • Fletcher and Ann Partis, who founded homes in Bath for women in distress in the 1820s.

A tour of these memorials around the Abbey will follow. 

What to expect

Our free activities are here to help you take some time for yourself and to meet others that understand the joys and challenges of looking after a loved one.

There's lots of reasons to join this fantastic activity:

  • There’ll be the opportunity to sketch some of the memorials for those who would like to. 
  • Learn more about Bath Abbey from some of the people who know it best. 

If you need help with transport to attend this activity, please inform us when booking. Whilst we will do our best to arrange this, please note that we cannot make any guarantees.
