The new information about Norfolk suffragette Caprina Fahey has provided us with a fascinating insight into her life.

And it is thanks to the two members of the public who approached the Norfolk Museums Service that we have been able to share it.

MORE: Public help provide fresh insight into life of Norfolk suffragette Caprina FaheyWhile we knew that she was an active campaigner for women's rights, the new details reveal more about her working past and her caring nature.

Despite appearing to be a seemingly ordinary woman, she did extraordinary things. And it is only right that we properly recognise her efforts as a suffrage pioneer.

Although we have a wealth of new information about Caprina, the work is not over. Despite all the details, the museums service is yet to find a photograph of her.

Anyone who can help should email andrew.bowen@norfolk.gov.uk
