Life and career

Maureen was born Elizabeth Mary Campfield in 1904 in Ireland. Her acting career began in 1939, wherein she acted in a film entitled A Ship in the Bay. Maureen mainly worked in television, with many minor and/or recurring roles in major shows such as Z-Cars, Open All Hours, Last of the Summer Wine and The Sweeney. She also appeared as an elderly lady in an episode of Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense, which co-starred Christopher Lee. More prominently, from 1981 to 1983, she had various roles on the Kenny Everett Show. Other television appearances included playing Lady Glenmire in the 1972 version of Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford, alongside Pat Coombs. She played Queen Victoria on two separate occasions on screen, one of them in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, the other in the mini-series The Edwardians. Her last film appearance was the role of the violently eccentric Mr. F's Aunt in Christine Edzard's two-part adaptation of Little Dorrit, co-starring Joan Greenwood, Max Wall and Sir Alec Guinness.

She died in London, aged 82.
