Ethel Rogers was Soldier Island’s cook and Thomas Rogers' wife. She is described as a “pale and ghost-like woman” who walks in mortal fear.

She was ‘dominated’ by her husband (who worked as a butler in the same place), who, in May 1929, coerced her into agreeing to deliberately withhold the medicine of a former employer (Jennifer Brady, a fragile and disease stricken spinster) in order to collect a small inheritance they knew she had left them.

In the popular 2015 And Then There Were None BBC miniseries, she was portrayed by British actress Anna Maxwell Martin.
