Lady Violet Deramore was born Blanche Violet Saltmarshe in Dublin on 2 July 1884, the eldest daughter of Colonel Philip Saltmarshe and his wife Ethel Murray. The family later settled at Saltmarshe Hall in Yorkshire.
On 26 June 1907 Violet married Robert Wilfred de Yarburgh-Bateson, 3rd Baron Deramore, in St Clement’s Church, York, becoming Lady Violet Deramore. She was his second wife. The family seat was at Heslington Hall, near York.
In 1909 Lady Violet joined the British Red Cross. During the First World War she transformed Heslington Hall into a convalescent home for wounded soldiers, receiving a certificate in 1918 for her ‘Honorary Services to the Sick and Wounded.’
Lady Violet was also a trustee of York County Hospital and a Vice-President of the Victoria Hospital for Sick Children in Hull.
In 1924 Lord Deramore became Lord Lieutenant of the East Riding and the couple’s public duties increased. Lady Violet took part in a number of royal visits to Yorkshire, including that of the Duke and Duchess of York to Hull and York in 1928 and Queen Mary’s visit in the 1930s.
Following the death of Lord Deramore on 1 April 1936, Heslington Hall passed to his brother Robert and Lady Violet relocated to London. She spent some time at her family home of Saltmarshe Hall and in her later years she lived with her goddaughter, Miss Lisa Gray, in Newbury, Berkshire.
Lady Violet Deramore died at Newbury on 30 December 1972, aged 88.
