Birth place of Margaret Thatcher (Baroness Thatcher, LG OM PC FRS) 1925-2013
Margaret Hilda Roberts was born in the flat over her father's grocers shop on North Parade Grantham on 13 October 1925. She became the first (and so far, only) woman Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1979-1990 and leader of the Conservative Political Party. She was educated at Kesteven & Grantham Girls School and then Studied Chemistry at Sommerville College, Oxford.
On the day my son visited Grantham people were laying flowers outside the premises where she was born, in tribute to her. She had died two days before the photos were taken.
