Who lies below?

Here is a puzzle for you.

Who lies below in this family vault in the graveyard of St Mary the Virgin, Cheshunt in Hertfordshire? And what is her - yes, her - connection to Ancient Egypt?

Time has eroded the name slightly but you may be able to decipher it.

Work it out and start to uncover the strange tale of a banjo-playing barmaid who became a great collector of Egyptian antiquities - a collection that has now vanished - a ‘mummy’s curse’ and death by elephant.

Intrigued? You should be.

All will be revealed in the coming weeks ...
