Mrs Sylvia Liberty, died 1914.

She was a suffragette in life and a tireless fighter for womens' rights. But in her zeal to make an impact, she mis-heard the instructions and threw herself under the Prince of Wales rather than his horse. This made something of a terminal impact on her, as Prince Edward was quite a large man: she died instantly. She is now a resident of the Blackbury cemetery, one of the almost-weres, came-in-seconds, and general misfits, whose spirits link hands to contact the living, and get Johnny Maxwell as their intermediary to the living.


Annotation

She is an allusion to Emily Wilding Davison
