Monk, Mary Frances

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Mary Frances Monk

Died on: Tuesday, 8th October 1940

Died at: Havelock Road, Hastings

Additional Information: Mary Monk, aged 20, was killed when a lone bomber dropped HE bombs and oil incendiaries on the Women’s Voluntary Services HQ, Havelock Road, Pelham Arcade and York Buildings. Three people were killed in the raid with a further eleven injured, one  seriously.

Mary was the daughter of James and Cissie Monk and lived at 223 The Ridge, Hastings

I was unable to locate Mary’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.
