Details

When Nancy Malone, one-time caretaker for the Brontë children, was asked by a local reporter what her dying wish would be, her answer was simple: not to be buried in a pauper’s grave. Despite this, after passing away in 1886, she was laid to rest alongside her sister in an unmarked plot in Undercliffe Cemetery.

More than a century later, thanks to the help of the Undercliffe Cemetery Charity, Charlotte Brontë’s nurse was finally granted her dying wish – a proper headstone.

Led by tour guides Gaynor Halliday and Steve Lightfoot, Nancy’s fascinating story is brought to life once more, together with tales of the authors, poets and painters who also reside within the grounds of this historic cemetery.
