Spencer, Winifred Ada

Hastings CemeteryName: Winfred Ada Spencer

Died on: Monday, 30th September 1940

Died at: Plaza Cinema, Robertson Street, Hastings

Additional Information: Winifred Spencer, aged 39, 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.

Winifred lived at 12 Alma Crescent, St Leonards and was married to Mr E. C. Spencer. She was the daughter of Mr & Mrs of F T Court of Folkestone. I was unable to locate Winifred’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.
