Mary Ann SOAL, MRBNA (1868-1956)

Mary Ann was the daughter of William and Mary Ann (nee HARKNETT) SOAL. She trained as a nurse, and as a personal nurse to Queen Victoria, attended the Queen on her deathbed. She remained with the Royal Family until 1922 and nursed five monarchs in all. She never married and after her retirement lived next door to her sister Elizabeth Jane in Clacton in Essex. The uniform she is wearing in this photo is believed to be that of the Royal Free Hospital.
