Death of Frieda Harris

The death of Frieda Harris (Lady Harris), and her grave in Srinagar, Kashmir

── Note the PDF file below! ──

Some years after her husband’s death Frieda Harris (Lady Harris) moved to Srinagar, the summer capital of Kashmir, India, where she lived on a houseboat on a lake – to all appearances the urban lake Dal (Dal in Kashmiri means lake).

In the summertime it was a most beautiful and pleasant place to live, however, during the winter season the lake often froze over, and it must have been a cold and unpleasant place to be, especially for a European woman in her eighties living on an uninsulated houseboat. Frieda Harris died at the age of eighty-five on Gay Fawkes Day, November 5, 1962 E.V. (and not as mostly stated on May 11), and was burried in Srinagar at the European cemetery at the Sheikh Bagh – a Christian cemetery on the banks of the Jhelum River.
