Britain's Most Famous Architect a hundred years ago was Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944). He designed Castle Drago in Devon and many country houses in the heyday of Edwardian country house building. After the First World War he designed our best-known war memorials, such as the Cenotaph in Whitehall and the massive memorial in Thiepval, Northern France, to those who died in the Battle of the Somme. He also designed more modest memorials, such as ours in Ayscoughfee Gardens.

Although Charlotte Charinton lived a modest and frugal life on London Road, her outstanding generosity in the building and restoration of local churches meant she was known well beyond South Holland. The Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer of 10 January 1888, for example, recorded her death, with an account of the churches that had benefited from her munificence.
