Lynn Redgrave

redgrave1March 08, 1943 – May 02, 2010

As a prominent third generation member of the famous British acting family, Lynn Rachel Redgrave followed – alongside sister, Vanessa – in the footsteps of her grandfather, Roy, and her mother and father, Rachel and Michael as a performer. Trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, Lynn quickly made a splash in regional theatre and on the West End. The transition to film was natural and her early roles in such classics as Tom Jones and Gregory Girl earned her high praise and award nominations. A sprawling, nearly five decade career followed that saw Lynn back on the stage, in films and on television, oftentimes appearing with her sister or her husband, John Clark. Lynn had very little trouble keeping the Redgrave name in the spotlight. Her work was prolific. Fun fact, she is the only person to have been nominated for all four awards of the fabled “EGOT” without ever winning any. Sometimes you can’t have it all.

Lynn died after a lengthy bout with breast cancer at the age of 67. She was buried next to her mother.


Saint Peter’s Episcopal Cemetery – Lithgow, NY

Specific Location

At the northern edge of the cemetery, when the road turns to grass, stop and Lynn is buried in front of you at the back of the cemetery, just to the right (south) of her mother, Rachel, just a few yards to the northwest of her niece, Natasha Richardson.
