Name: Violet Emily Cox
Died on: Sunday, 23rd May 1943
Died at: Swan Hotel, High Street, Hastings
Additional Information: Violet Cox, aged 32, was killed when a number of fighter bombers dropped 25 HE Bombs on The Albany Hotel, Warrior House Hotel, Swan Hotel, Reeves Antique Shop, Old Town, Warrior Gate, Public House, Norman Road and Gensing Road. One of the worse attacks on the town during the war, 25 other people died and 85 more were injured, 30 seriously.
Violet was the daughter of Frederick William & Emily Cox of 53 Belmont Road, Hastings
I was unable to locate Violet’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.
