My concern be solely that she was not at rest, but abroad by night on vaporous sojourns, rather than rolled round on earths diurnal course, so to speak. I meant no disrespect to Cheshire and environs.
She's not believed to haunt anywhere. Her grave is in a peaceful rural churchyard, like the one in Gray's famous Elegy.
Gray felt that people buried in such a place may have led unfulfilled lives and had talents that went unappreciated in life -
Full many a flow'r is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.
This can't be said of Helen Mc Farlane. She lived rather a colourful life before settling down in Cheshire, having seen upheavals and terrible personal loss, along with being the first to translate the Communist Manifesto into English.
Sadly she died relatively young of bronchitis, which would be easily treated now, and left two small sons. I wonder if they have descendants? They might live locally.
