Sister of Derek Bentley. She fought for many years to clear his name. Unfortunately, she died a year before the Court of Appeal quashed his conviction. Her ashes were placed on his grave, in an urn with the inscription, 'You will always be in my heart, your loving daughter Maria'. The epitaph in full reads 'Here lies DEREK WILLIAM BENTLEY, a victim of British justice. 30th. June 1933 - 28th. January 1953. Aged 19 years. Much loved son and brother. "THE TRUTH WILL OUT" - Iris Bentley. In loving memory of William George Bentley, a devoted husband and father. Born 3rd. May 1905, fell asleep 12th. July 1974.
