    Story

    Catherine Candon de Sousa died on 20th March 2018 at the age of 91 years and she is buried in Dublin, which was her birthplace. For much of the last 20 years of her life she lived close to Russell Square in Holborn, London. She was well known in the locality and worked as a volunteer in the British Museum and the Foundling Museum. She loved to spend time in Russell Square and would often meet friends there when the weather permitted!

    Catherine's family and friends are planning to dedicate a bench with a plaque in her memory, which can be visited by family and friends when in London. The cost of this will be £1500 which the immediate family will pay substantially towards, but other friends or family can also contribute using this page.

      This is a map to show the location of the memorial bench in Russell Square, on a path which runs along the south-east side of the square. We hope that Catherine's friends will be able to visit Russell Square and see the bench when they are in the vicinity.

      Dear Friends of Catherine de Sousa Thank you so much for your kind and generous donation towards the memorial bench for our late mother. We wanted to give you this update as it has been some time since we were in touch. We have just spoken with Camden Council again and they have told us that we are still on the waiting list. They expect to be able to go ahead some time later this year. We will keep you informed. With very best wishes Carlos, Albert and Angela de Sousa

      We all cherish the memories of the times we spent with Catherine as children. We will remember her as a wise, strong woman, who shared her knowledge and love generously.
