Ann Ayre Hely, a Crimean War Nurse from Ravenstone, Leicestershire

Ann Ayre Hely

Ann Ayre Hely was born Ann Ayre Bradshaw in Ravenstone, Leicestershire. After the death of her husband she volunteered in 1855 to go out to the East to nurse the sick and injured soldeirs of the Crimean War.

In 1897, at the age of 78, she was awarded the Royal Red Cross medal for nursing military personnel.

Ann has now been awarded a Leicestershire County Council Green Plaque. Many thanks to everyone who voted for her.
