Edith Cavell monument

Erpingham Gate Tombland Norwich NR3 1RF

The bravest of the brave, Norfolk’s own Edith Cavell (1865-1915) was a nurse in Brussels when the Germans occupied that city in World War I. Afterwards, she began helping British soldiers escape back home, actions which brought her to the attention of the Germans, who tried and executed her in 1915. There’s a monument in Cavell’s honour on the Tombland and her grave is at the back of the Cathedral.
