Great-grandson achieves tribute

The great-grandson of Constance Baker, known as ‘Mother of the Wounded’ during WW1, has successfully appealed for her to be awarded a blue plaque in the village of her birth.

Dressmaker Constance (1868-1929, pictured) was born in Marham, West Norfolk, and later moved to London where she made a living making theatre costumes. After their son was killed in the war, she and husband John opened up their Fulham home to returning troops, earning Constance the description ‘Mother of the Wounded’, and organised open air entertainment for the soldiers in Bishop’s Park, Fulham.

Now, thanks to the efforts of her great-grandson Timothy Warner, a blue plaque is being unveiled in Constance’s memory on the former school house in Marham – now the village hall – on 21 September.
