Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

I recently found this picture of a blue plaque dedeciated to Gabrielle Ray, the photographer kindly agreed that I could post it here.

Stockport Tourist Information advised me that the blue plaque dedicated to Gabrielle Ray can be found at Bamford Grange, 239 Adswood Road, Stockport SK3 8PA.  The site of her family home is now occupied by a residential nursing home for people with dementia, mental health conditions and old age  Gabrielle Ray is the only woman to have a commemorative blue plaque in Stockport. However I note on Stockport’s tourist information page of “famous stopfordian’s” she is not mentioned.

    • I have mixed views about Wikipedia, many of the “facts” are only that because of the repetition they receive and “edits” are often deleted.
