Charles and Mary Lamb
In 1847, at the age of 82, Mary Lamb died and was buried alongside her brother Charles in the churchyard of All Saints, Edmonton.
During their lifetimes, Charles and Mary were a central part of a literary circle which included such figures as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William and Dorothy Wordsworth, and William Hazlitt. They were the authors of essays, poems and plays. Their most enduring literary legacy was their 'Tales from Shakespeare', prose versions of some of Shakespeare's plays written especially for children.
