Researcher visits grave of KM’s sister


UK researcher Dr Gerri Kimber has been visiting New Zealand for the fourth time in her diligent search for more information about Katherine Mansfield. Her latest trip is as the 2015 recipient of the Friends of Turnbull Library Research Grant, investigating KM’s early years in Wellington.

One sunny day in August, she opted for a walk in the Bolton Street Cemetery to see the grave of Katherine Mansfield’s baby sister Gwendoline Beauchamp, who died in infancy in 1891.
