Hanged Ruth Ellis lived here

Ruth Ellis, the last woman executed in Britain, lived here.

Location: 44 Egerton Gardens, Ealing, London, W13 8HQ

Description: The infamous Ruth Ellis lived in a bedsit here at 44 Egerton Gardens and managed a members only drinking club called The Little Club in nearby 37 Brompton Road.

Ellis, aged 28 years, was executed at Holloway Prison on 13 July 1955 for shooting dead her former lover David Blakely.

The hanging of Ellis produced a shift in public opinion against hanging - the hanging of women at any rate.

She was the last woman executed in Britain and capital punishment itself was suspended in 1965.

The case was the subject of the film, Dance with a Stranger starring Miranda Richardson and Rupert Everett.
