Coventry Blitz 1940/41 records

Post by VALLMO9 »

Find My Past now have a record set for casualties of the German air raids over Coventry between November 1940 and June 1941. Details include name and home address, nature of casualty (killed, injured etc) and where the casualty was treated. The lists were compiled by the Casualty Bureau. The five lists that FMP has now published were latterly held by the Midland Daily Telegraph.

"The vast majority of the casualties were, of course, citizens of Coventry, but there were also people from the length and breadth of Britain whose names you will find on these lists, as well as military personnel and members of the Auxiliary Fire Service and Air Raid Precautions.
Children and adults alike are recorded in these lists, and surname searches quickly reveal whole families affected".
