Edith 'Judy' Ingamells (née Gude; 12 January 1894 – 1 March 2006) was the oldest living person in the United Kingdom, following the death of 113-year-old Lucy d'Abreu on 7 December 2005, until her death aged 112 years 48 days. Judy's successor as the UK's oldest living person was Emmeline Brice.
Born in Maidenhead, Berkshire, Ingamells, nicknamed "Judy", moved to Enfield, London at the beginning of the Second World War, where she married a florist, Percy Ingamells, who worked for a family firm based in Covent Garden. She lived in other areas around England, and worked as a milliner before coming back to settle in Enfield in 1990. Ingamells had three daughters, five grandchildren, four great-grand children and two great-great-grandchildren.
When serenaded with wartime songs on her 112th birthday, Ingamells responded "I don't like war songs. Who wants to remember something as horrible as the war?". The secret to Ingamells' longevity, said daughter Pat Bull at the time of her 111th birthday, was to "never look back, always look forward, which she is certainly doing".
