Cornwall, Florence Elizabeth

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Florence Elizabeth Cornwall

Died on: Tuesday, 10th September 1940

Died at: Buchanan Hospital, but likely injured near to her home at 35 St Peters Road, St Leonards

Additional Information: Florence Cornwall, aged 51, died when a lone bomber dropped 10 high explosive bombs, and 40 incendiaries on Hollington Park, The Green, Sedlescombe Road South, Tower Road West, St Peter’s Road, Cloudsley Road, Woodland Vale Road and Christ Church School. One other person was killed, and there were other injuries, number unknown.

The information provided by CWGC states that Florence was the daughter of J A Cornwall.

I was unable to locate Florence’s grave marker in the main area of WW2 war graves, so she is likely buried else where on site. I will look to find it when I revisit Hastings Cemetery.
