Civilian War Graves - Weston Cemetery
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 13/12/2015 - 18:01

A memorial to the Casualties of the Weston-super-Mare Blitz has been erected on the Civilian War Graves Plot in Weston Cemetery.  An invitation is extended to all members of the Family History Society to attend a short dedication of the Memorial at 2.00pm on January 7th 2016 which will take place at the Civilian War Graves Plot in the Cemetery and will mark the 75 years since the first blitz on Weston.

The Memorial includes a plan of the graves indicating where individuals were buried. I'm including a link to the data  on the Memorial, much of which was taken from our work on Weston Cemetery.   If you have any connection with those mentioned on the Memorial please can you let ne know if you will be attending.
