The George Eliot Fellowship

Mr AF Cross - founder of the George Eliot Fellowship

The George Eliot Fellowship was founded by Mr A F Cross on 9th November 1930.

The title of 'Fellowship' rather than society was a personal choice of Mr Cross, as he felt it to be most suited to admirers of a woman who still had a message for present and future generations.

 "Should Nuneaton erect a memorial to George Eliot? If so, what form should it take?" The majority of the writers he approached were surprised that a memorial did not already exist.
