Bovenizer, Constance Mary

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Constance Mary Bovenizer

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Died at: 71 Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Constance Bovenizer, aged 74, 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.

Constance, a member of the Women’s Voluntary Service, was married to Alfred Bovenizer, who also died in the attack. They lived at Flat 9a, 71 Warrior Square.

I was unable to locate Constance’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.
