This was taken at the stern end of the deck salon/cabin on board Standart.  The element just to the left and behind Anna is the little spiral stair case that went up to the roof of the dining salon.  For some reason it's rarely seen in photos.

I think she died at the age of 80 in 1964. I'm not sure, it could also be that she was still 79. As far as I can remember, the last picture was taken one year before her death.

On Anna Virubova's (Taneeva's) grave are written the following dates of birth and death: 16.7.1884 and 20.7.1964. However, 16.7 is according to the Julian calendar, so that would be 29.7 (Gregorian calendar). So she was still 79 when she died.....

The last picture of her tombstone, all covered by snow is very romantic. It's a great pic.

If she was 79 in the last pic posted here, I think she aged quite well.

It was once thought that Derevenko made Aleksey do chores for him before leaving the family in 1917, as written by Anya. But it turns out this probably isn't true, since he later asked to go with the family to Tobolsk/Eketerinburg, but wasn't allowed. Why would Anya lie? What would she gain from that? And can we trust anything she wrote because of it?

Like many people associated with the Imperial Family, Anya Vyrubova was a complex person. I know she expressed different views in her later memoirs, but at the time of her first memoirs, there were few people who could contradict her, so she was free to construct her story the way she wanted to. Why would she lie? Those who knew differently were dead! What she gained is she was able to tell her story her way, she was able to make herself look far better than she really was. Can you trust anything she wrote? Well, you know she was a liar, so I would say, just like the Bolsheviks who had no problem lying, you can believe what she said that can be corroborated by another source. Otherwise, it's a possibility.

How do I find Anya's grave in the Hietaniemi cemetery, Please. And for that matter, how do I find the cemetery itself? I have a small guide book for Helsinki but they do not show the place.
 I will be in Helsinki this June and would like to visit here grave.
 Any help, much appreciated.

It's in the western suburb of Etu-Töölö. Vyrubova's grave must be either in the Helsinki Orthodox Cemetery or the Cemetery of the St. Nicholas Orthodox Parish. located, as far as I can see, to the south of the main Hietaniemi cemetery.  Take a look at the cemetary's home page with maps (kartta) and contact details: Hietaniemen hautausmaa
