Southey, Albert Henry

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Albert Henry Southey

Died on: Monday, 30th September 1940

Died at: Plaza Cinema, Robertson Street, Hastings

Additional Information: Albert Southey, aged 61, was killed when a single bomber dropped one HE bomb that hit the Plaza Cinema on Robertson Street, Hastings. Thirteen other people were killed and thirty five injured, twelve seriously.

Albert was in in the Home Guard and lived at 172 Queens Road, Hastings. His wife Frances was also killed during the raid. I was unable to locate Albert’s grave marker in the main area of WW2 war graves, so he is likely buried else where on site. I will look to find it when I revisit Hastings Cemetery.
