Amateur, Burma
Wife of Charles Ernest Muriel (d. 5 Oct 1949) of the Forest Service, India and Burma. The couple retired to Bordighera, Italy, where they lived at the Hotel Londra for several years, but returned to England (via France, Spain and Portugal) in 1942. Final years spent in Bournemouth, where they are buried.
 
A gifted amateur photographer and painter. A number of her photographs were also hand-tinted. Photogravure of the ‘Kyaungdwyn Pagodahm, Upper Burmah’ by F.M. Muriel, ‘a lady correspondent in Burma’, used as the illustration to the April 1899 issue of The Journal of the Photographic Society of India (vol. XII, no. 4), and a number of her photographs won prizes at exhibitions in India. A series of her views of Burma was published by Rowe and Co., Rangoon, in the early 1900s. Her paintings decorated the cabin of the Princess of Wales during her trip on the Irrawaddy; these paintings were later displayed at the Wembley Exhibition of 1924.
