One of the most popular foxhunting personalities in the Shires, Margaret (Migs) Greenall, died on 10 January aged 95.

Mrs Greenall came to Leicestershire from her native Scotland during the war to train horses to harness for the war effort at Melton remount depot.

She lived in Waltham-on-the-Wolds after marrying Edward Greenall, son of Lord (Toby) Daresbury, joint-master of the Belvoir and later of the Co Limerick.

Mrs Greenall hunted with the Belvoir into her 80s and two of her sons became MFHs — Lord (Peter) Daresbury with the Wynnstay and Johnny Greenall with the Meynell.

A memorial service will be held at Waltham-on-the-Wolds at 3.30pm on Monday (28 January).
