In 1916 Elfrida came to Kings Cross to work with her cousin, Lillian Gregg, who had set up a special kindergarten for young children considered to be ‘ineducable’ and ‘mentally defective’.

Elfrida Rathbone carried on Lillian Gregg’s work after her death.

In 2016, The Elfrida Society celebrated 100 years of the work of Elfrida Rathbone.
