She used to collect elaborately decorated fans, which are now on display at Ickworth House. For this she was honoured with the freedom of the Worshipful Company of Fanmakers. Her collection of silver fish are also on display

When the Marquess died in 1907, she moved into a London house with her unmarried sister-in-law, Lady Mary Hervey.


Lady Bristol died on 25 January 1927 in St George's Hospital on Hyde Park Corner after being knocked down by a motor car in Hyde Park, London and was buried in the grounds of the family home, Ickworth House, two days later.
