Alice Marietta Marval (26 January 1865 – 4 January 1904) was an English doctor and nurse who served the patients suffering from Plague during an epidemic in Cawnpore (presently Kanpur), India. Alice qualified as a doctor from London when she was only 36. Alice was sent to Cawnpore from England in 1899 under the SPG Mission (now United Society). She died in 1904 serving Plague patients and was buried at Subedar Ka Talao Cemetery (now Christians Graveyard) in Cawnpore. She founded the first nursing school for women in India in St Catherine Hospital which still serves the poor and weaker section of society in Kanpur.
