Evans, Maud Isabel

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Maud Isabel Evans

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Wounded at: Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Maud Evans, aged 74, was wounded 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. She died later that day at the Royal East Sussex Hospital. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.

Maud lived at 45 West Hill, St Leonards.

I was unable to locate Maud’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.

Maud is not named on Hastings War Memorial.
