Anne Brontë enthusiasts are due to gather at the graveside of the Yorkshire author and poet this lunchtime, at St Mary’s church, Scarborough, to dedicate the memorial plaque, laid in her honour in 2011.
The Brontë Society’s plaque interprets the wording on Anne’s original gravestone, which is so weathered it was becoming hard to read. It also corrects a mistake in the original inscription – Anne’s age at the time of her death is now correctly stated as 29, rather than 28.
A simple service of dedication will be held at the graveside by Revd Martyn Dunning, vicar of St Mary’s. Members of the Brontë Society, who maintain the grave, will read some of Anne’s poems, and Brontë Society Chairman Sally McDonald will talk about the history of the plaque.
