Martin, Sarah

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Sarah Martin

Died on: Tuesday, 2nd February 1943

Died at: 7 Moscow Road, Clive Vale, Hastings

Additional Information: Sarah Martin, aged 64, was killed when an unknown number of planes dropped several 2,000lb bombs and 14 HE bombs on St John’s Church, Upper St Leonards, Ashbrook Road, Christ Church, Ore, Moscow Road, Alfred Road & Cumberland Gardens. Three others were killed in the raid, with a further five injured, three seriously.

Sarah was married to Alfred Robert Thomas Martin. She lived at 9 Moscow Road.

I was unable to locate Sarah’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.
