Southey, Frances

Hastings Cemetery
Name: Frances Southey

Died on: Monday, 30th September 1940

Died at: Plaza Cinema, Robertson Street, Hastings

Additional Information: Frances 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.

Frances lived at 172 Queens Road, Hastings. Her husband Albert was also killed during the raid. I was unable to locate Frances’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.
