In light of International Women's day, it is our intention to highlight the great women who worked and are buried in the Jewellery Quarter.
Harriet Martineau (June 12, 1802-June 27, 1876), a pioneering British journalist and writer. A free trade advocate, she advocated the kind and affectionate treatment of children. She is best remembered for her contributions to the emerging woman’s movement and for the example she set as a woman powerful in spheres dominated by men.
Buried in the Martineau family grave at Key Hill Cemetery
