Ann Caithness died on 20 May 1889.
The Hampshire Advertiser of Saturday 25 May reported that at 94 she was one of the oldest residents of Totton. If confirmation was needed that she was still living in the almshouses this local press item obliges.
Evidently the newspaper was unable to resist mentioning that Mrs Caithness was the grandmother of the recently-widowed Marchioness of Ely, at which point the report wanders off the main topic to deliver information about the late Marquis’s ashes, deposited in the family vault at Kensal Green, even giving minute details of the urn 'of Doulton ware'. Such is the way of the world. Ann’s funeral is dispensed with in a simple sentence without letting us into the secret of where she was buried.

The Marchioness in question was Caroline Caithness, daughter of Ann’s son George Caithness, Master Mariner. Caroline had married on 9 December 1875 John Henry
Graham Loftus, 4th Marquis of Ely, who held estates in . They
had no children. The Marquis died on 3 April 1889 so Caroline lost her husband
and her mother within a matter of weeks. Ireland
