Gabrielle Ray


Today was the unveiling of another of the town’s blue plaques. This time put up by the Gabrielle Ray Appreciation Society.

She was the most photographed lady in Edwardian Britain, and a favourite of the troops in WW I
She was born at Bamford Grange in Adswood, now re-built as a nursing home.
Gabrielle’s two great nieces were there to see the unveiling carried out by number one fan, Robert Waters.
Stockport Heritage Trust was proud to be able to assist Robert in getting his plaque to Gabrielle up.
Well done Gabby, you are the only woman in Stockport to have a blue plaque.
