About Agnes Jones
St. Mura’s Graveyard in Fahan is the resting place of Agnes Jones, a famous nightingale nurse. She was appointed superintendent of Brownlow Hill Workhouse in Liverpool in 1864 and the improvements and structures that she implemented were taken as a model of good practice and copied nationwide. Florence Nightingale said that she was “a woman attractive and rich and young and witty; yet a veiled and silent woman, distinguished by no other genius than the divine genius”.Her contribution to the welfare of the sick was enormous. However the work took its toll upon her and she died of typhus fever in 1864 at 35 years of age.The memory of her outstanding contribution to nursing and to the poor is commemorated in Liverpool. A window in the Anglican Cathedral is dedicated to her memory and a statue to her stands in the Cathedral Oratory.Agnes Jones is buried beside her Father in St. Mura’s Graveyard, Fahan. In celebration of Agnes Jones and her Fahan heritage, we have dedicated our Afternoon Tea in her honour.
