Meredith Brown

Biography




Meredith Brown was born in Aberdeen in 1845. She lived at 78 Dee Street. This is now used by Albyn House Association. A plaque is there in honour of this early Aberdeen social reformer.



In the 1880s she moved to London to help improve the lives of girls who worked in factories.



Meredith Brown set up a meeting place for the girls to meet in their free time. She would visit the slums where they lived, dressed as a factory girl, to learn more about them.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
