Birth: Sep. 12, 1859
Death: Apr. 26, 1885

English nursemaid honoured for her bravery in rescuing the children in her care from a house fire. Ayres was a household assistant and nursemaid to the family of her brother-in-law and sister, Henry and Mary Ann Chandler. The Chandlers owned an oil and paint shop in Union Street, Southwark, then just south of London, and Ayres lived with the family above the shop. In 1885 fire broke out in the shop, and Ayres rescued three of her nieces from the burning building, before falling from a window and suffering fatal injury.

Alice was my Great Grandfather's (Alfred Ayres)sister. My maiden name was Judith Ayres. I am very proud of Alice and only found out her full story recently since starting researching my family history early this year.
