Lilian Lindsay (1871-1960) was remembered with the placing of an English Heritage blue plaque at her former childhood home in Holloway, Islington, north London.

The plaque was unveiled by Dame Margaret Seward, past president of the General Dental Council and past chief dental officer together with Margaret Murray, Lilian’s niece, at the house where Lilian Lindsay lived from 1872 until 1892 and where she first decided to become a dentist.

Dame Margaret Seward said: ‘As a newly qualified dentist in 1959, Lilian Lindsay's ground-breaking achievements became my inspiration and remained so throughout my career.

‘The English Heritage blue plaque is a wonderful tribute to an amazing pioneer in the dental profession. I am truly humbled to have been invited to unveil the plaque today and rejoice that all her struggles have been so richly rewarded.’
