The Gaskell Memorial Service 2024

29 September, 10:45 am - 12:00 pm BST

Every year, on a Sunday close to what would have been Elizabeth Gaskell’s birthday, we lay flowers on her grave (10.45am) at Brook Street Chapel in Knutsford. This year, our service actually falls on the day itself, so our theme is birthdays and celebration.

We also lay flowers on the nearby grave of the Gaskell Society’s founder, the much-missed Joan Leach. We then go into the chapel for a special service, with readings from Gaskell’s works,  from 11am.

You are most welcome to join us.
