Bloore, Fanny Elizabeth

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Fanny Elizabeth Bloore

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Died at: 7 West Hill, St Leonards

Additional Information: Fanny Bloore, aged 60, was killed when seven fighter bombers swept into St Leonards strafing with machine gun fire and dropping HE bombs on Warrior Square, West Hill, St Leonards, Quarry Hill and De Cham Road. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.

Fanny was a member of the Women’s Voluntary Service and the daughter of William Grosvenor Bloore and Elizabeth Price Bloore. She lived at 7 West Hill.

I was unable to locate Fanny’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.
