The photo of the grave that I have is that provided by Steve as being the general area of unmarked graves where she is likely to be. I cannot see that the naming on the panel would be a mistake of the "artist" and I suspect that York Minster was provided with incorrect information. Out of interest the Yorkshire Herald published a full list of female casualties around 1920 and which I have compared with those names on the York Minster panels. There are many differences and I suspect that York Minster and the Yorkshire Herald were provided with lists separately but from the same source. Both the Yorkshire Herald and York Minsters have her as WHIDGETT so I supect the error was made by whoever provided the list to them. The panels are riddled with errors, mistakes, doubling up of names on different panels, etc. I think that correcting the name is likely to prove difficult without damaging the appearance of what is currently there. It would mean stripping back the varnish and it would be hard to match up afterwards. But she is your ancestor and, correctly, you should have the last say. There really are hundreds of mistakes on these panels. There is something rather human about that.

The CWGC does not have the grave marked but, instead, have her recorded on a memorial wall. She was buried in a communal grave which is only marked by a numbered stone (hers is 3). I have photographs of the memorial wall and the numbered grave. I also have an early photograph of her grave showing soon after her burial which has a wooden cross with her name on it.

Just found this list of memorials in Sheffield. It is a few years old now but is pretty comprehensive. Seems to be plenty of woman here as well

 

https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/10132-sheffields-great-war-rolls-of-honour/?tab=comments#comment-80151

 

I have had a scan through it. A lot of work has gone into preparing the list. I note that the Leicester Infirmary memorial isn't one that has made the list.

Thank you Wayne. You are, of course, in my neck of the wood, so I should have taken you for a pint. Willey's headstone is new and I have been awaiting it's production. When I visited it was just a plot. Anyway, thank you. Jim
