7th March 1913: Suffragettes jailed for Kew Gardens blaze
Lilian Lenton and Olive Wharry, Suffragettes linked to the Women's Social and Political Union, had been arrested nearby on the night of the fire.
Found guilty, they were sentenced to 18 months imprisonment at the Old Bailey in central London.
Both were sent to Holloway prison in north London to serve out their sentences but immediately went on hunger strike, saying that they would not eat until they were released.
Lenton was quickly freed after she became seriously ill following an attempt by the prison authorities to force-feed her.
After a 32-day hunger strike, which she apparently managed to keep a secret from the guards, Wharry was also released.
