Miss Badcock, of Fysh House, Bures,' dedicated herself in the 1920s to restoring the little chapel to its former glory. Miss Hadcock's sister, Mary Probert, was the original model for 'Alice' who Sir John Tenniel drew to illustrate Lewis Caroll's immortal book.
With the help of her brother-in-law Colonel W. Carwardine Probert, of Bevills, Bures, the work was eventually completed and the chapel rededicated.
Both Colonel and Mrs. Probert and Miss Badcock chose the chapel as their final resting place.
