Clapham, Amy Fanny

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Amy Fanny Clapham

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Died at: 69 Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Amy Clapham, aged 78, 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.

Amy was the widow of Charles George Clapham

I was unable to locate Amy’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.
