Maureen Hiron


As well as being the widow of Alan Hiron, Maureen was a well-known bridge player in her own right, and succeeded Alan as bridge correspondent for the Independent. Long resident in Spain, Maureen enjoyed great success at creating games. Perhaps the best known were Continuo and Quizwrangle. She also set questions for early seasons of the popular TV quiz show Fifteen to One, and devised puzzles for The Krypton Factor. At the bridge table she was on the winning England team in both the 1974 and 1975 Lady Milne Trophy and represented Great Britain in the European Championships of 1974.

Maureen Hiron died in June 2022. Our condolences to her family and friends.
