Sir Edward Grey
Person Male Born 25/4/1862 Died 7/9/1933
Viscount Grey of Falloden. Born London. Foreign Secretary. Died Northumberland at his country seat.
He figures in one of the pivotal moments in the campaign for the vote for women. in 1905 Christabel Pankhurst and Annie Kenney interrupted a Manchester rally to ask Sir Edward Grey and Winston Churchill, then MP for Oldham, if they believed women should have the right to vote. They were thrown out and jailed. Following this the suffragettes moved towards more radical, direct protest.
