Etheldreda Anna Benett, Mother Foundress of the Sisters of Bethany, died a century ago and was buried in Bournemouth’s St Clement’s churchyard.
The House of Bethany was a major presence alongside the church.
The Foundress died at the mother house in London but the funeral was in Bournemouth.
The Sisters of Bethany are now in Southsea and will be returning to Boscombe for an anniversary service at St Clement’s at noon on Monday 29 July.
