88 year old Mrs. M.R. Cantem, better known as Peggy or Aunty Peggy, is one of the most popular figures in Jhansi today. She was all set to migrate to the UK but when her husband passed away in 1986, she changed her mind and stayed to work with the local community. In 2004, Peggy decided to restore the Jhansi Lynchgate Cemetery, which along with 62 Commission cantonment graves, has graves dating back to the era of the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857.
