Could it be a WW1 Baden Volunteer Nurse's Cross? (or similar?)

See: https://www.emedals.com/a-first-war-1914-16-baden-volunteer-nurse-s-cross

Added: Or a Royal Red Cross, King George V?

Thanks KG for taking the time to look and both have possibilities though not sure which...there is also this which leads me to think it's the one in the first link.

Added: I've just realised that the raised shoulders of her uniform date it to 1890s so not likely to be WW1

Hi Max...Thanks for your response and your input....I have had a look but can't see a match for the cross on the link at the moment but worth looking a bit deeper.

I hope she only wore it for the photo and not in practice as she could have had someone's eye out with that  ;D

Couldn't resist doing a quick cleanup of this one. Hope you enjoy!
I just like to do photo restores.
