Lady Alexandra Margaret Anne Cavendish-Bentinck, 1916-2008
Grove & Rufford Hunt, Lady Anne Cavendish-Bentinck, Obituaries, Rufford Harriers
The Grove and Rufford Hunt (amalgamated 1952) reports:
It is with great sadness that we report the death after a short illness of Lady Anne Bentinck. Lady Anne was aged 92 and was a great supporter of the hunt throughout her life, following the long tradition of the Dukes of Portland. She was Master of the Grove & Rufford after the amalgamation, and then formed her own pack, the Rufford Harriers, which hunted part of the GRH country. In recent years she invited us back to Welbeck, both to hunt and for the point to point, and was a regular follower, most recently from Carburton on 8th November. As a mark of respect, the meet planned for Saturday from the Fountian Welbeck has been cancelled.
