Grave of social reformer Josephine Butler

  • Description

    "Josephine Elizabeth Grey (1828-1906) was baptized at St Gregory's Church on 30th May 1828. In 1852 she married George Butler (later Canon of Winchester Cathedral) who supported her work tackling issues relating to the poverty, employment and education of women, and in her crusade against the Contagious Diseases Acts.
