The Emily Davison Memorial Project have worked long and hard to ensure a permanent memorial to the famous suffragette  Emily Wilding Davison, who was tragically killed following injuries at the Epsom Derby on 4th June 1913, when she ran out into the path of the King’s horse during the race, dying four days later at the Cottage Hospital in Epsom. 

Their hard work has resulted in a beautiful statue of Emily – seated on a bench and this was installed at the recent Opening Ceremony – watch on Youtube

The statue is in an ideal location in the market place – and is already attracting a lot of attention as a pleasant place to seat and take a few minutes with the great lady herself. 

This was very noticeable on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Epsom – with a street food market taking place, and music in the air with Epsom Music In The Marketplace.


The next time you are in Epsom – spare a few minutes, take a seat and contemplate in the company of a great lady.
