Sacrifice, Sorrow and Salvation: The Grosvenor Family, Eaton Hall and the Great War

15 November @ 7.30pm - 9.00pm

| £5.00

Lecture Theatre
Grosvenor Museum Society members free, non-members £5.
Louise Benson, Archivist for the Eaton Estate, relates the story of the Grosvenor family during the Great War. It is often said that the conflict left no family untouched, and that is true of the Grosvenors: for them too this was a time of loss, grief, and experiences that would change the family forever. However, there was salvation: Eaton Hall, like many country houses, became a hospital for wounded soldiers – a place of refuge in dark times.
