Categories: Friend / family

Activist for maternity health and wife of the Prime Minister. Born Lucy Ridsdale in Bayswater but grew up in Rottingdean and was always known as Cissie. Married Stanley Baldwin in 1892 and had 6 children that survived. Her experience of painful childbirth prompted her work to make pain relief available to all women, not just the rich. Died at Astley Hall, near Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire. Our picture shows Cissie and Stanley at No 11 Downing Street.
