Lilly Langtry

When I was on holiday in Jersey 
we had a lovely  tour around the island and one of the stops was to see the final resting place of the famous 19th century actress Lily Langtry. I have long been fascinated with her rather incredible life, she was a real beauty of her day and her name was known all over the land in the late 1880s . 
She grew up on the lovely island of Jersey and was known even at the tender age of 14 as a real beauty  .
The church in the photo is not only the church her father was the vicar at but where she chose to be taken and laid to rest when she died at her home in France.
