Biography

Hebden was born on 4 October 1893 in Burnley, Lancashire, England. She died in the same city on 30 November 2005 at the age of 112 years, 57 days. Little else is known about her life.

Longevity Records

Hebden became the oldest living person in England following the death of 111 year-old Emily Calvert on 13 January 2005. However, she was never the oldest living person in the whole of the United Kingdom, as Lucy d'Abreu – who lived in Scotland – was 16 months older and outlived Hebden by a week.

Hebden became the last surviving British person born in 1893 following the death of Doris Prater (22 days her junior) on 21 January 2005. However, as Lucy d'Abreu was born in 1892, Hebden was not the last surviving British person born before 1894.

Following Hebden's death, Judy Ingamells became the oldest living person in England.
