    Just outside the Metropolitan Police Area. Sorry. Two other Simister casualties are mentioned, from Ashville Road E11.

    So is the same true of East Finchley then?

    I cannot imagine how much work this project has entailed! Well actually I can and I'm amazed.

    East Finchley is covered (well there are plenty of casualties whose address is given as such anyway). The London Area (5) changed boundaries during the war, so there are some strange hits (and misses).

    Albert Sydney Dubber, aged 61, of 18 Earlsthorpe Road SE26. The deceased was taken to Verdant Lane Mortuary, SE6.

    Gertrude Ada Facer, aged 29, of the same address, also taken to the same mortuary.

    Many others injured and killed in houses adjoining this property (number 14, 16, 20 etc).

    It was a Father and daughter. The rest of the family including My Sister-in-law's Mother had gone to the cinema about half an hour earlier. Gertrude did not feel well apparently and it cost her life with that of her Father. An air raid occurred, which as you say, killed and injured others in the same road. Cheers for that Pete.

    Okay. I think the database has proved itself. It certainly needs to be used with other resources - Geoff's Search Engine, CWGC and Fire Brigade Records etc.

    I am no longer taking enquiries, unless it is urgently required. I am busy at work, and need to finish the other databases.

    Thank you for testing.

    Pete

    Pete, many thanks.

    Excellent work by the way.

    Deacs Well i am from Cumbria. Patron

    Mary Kennon, killed, was also indentified by Cortesi. Found at number 51, yet shown as living at number 55. I will look further, to see if there is more.

    Hi Pete excellent work by the way but did you find anything else

    Regards Michael.

    Mary O'Neil Dowall - taken to Buttesland Street Mortuary
    Sophia Witchell (sic) - abdominal injury, received at St Matthew's Hospital. Later died. Name should be WITCHALLS. This case is really interesting. If you look at the CWGC entry, you would never know where she received her fatal injuries. I think the database will throw up a lot of similar cases.
    Margaret Brown - taken to Buttesland Street Mortuary

    Thanks Pete

    I did get Mary Dowall from a colleague and Margaret Brown from CWGC but didn't find Witchell(Witchalls).

    Your doing a grand worthwhile job good luck with your progress.

    Pete - I believe you can edit the title of your thread so that might be worth doing to dissuade further enquiries.

    Brilliant work Pete, I don't blame you for closing enquiries. The database seems to be a great source.
    Look forward to seeing it 'going live'.

    It will be going on Who Do You Think You Are, and then FindMyPast - along with the London Fire Brigade Records.

    Any reason why it's not going on a free access online site?

    It's a fair question, Geoff.

    I have signed a contract with FMP, which was keen to host the following databases:

    1 WW1 civilians and military killed by air raids on the UK
    2 All WW1 air raid incidents on London
    3 WW2 Fire Brigade incidents recorded on air raids in London
    4 Civilians killed or injured, in the London District, by air raids in WW2

    My contract, for which I will get a small revenue share, will pay for the databases (and 20 plus years worth of research) to be privately printed.

    I am then free, once the book is printed, to host the information free of charge, on a website, according to my contract. This will include information that FMP was not willing to host (Unidentified WW2 casualties, including photos, and bomb census maps for WW1).

    I will not be making a profit. Trust me, I have spent a small fortune in amassing this information, which I would like to be made available to as many people as possible. My revenue from FMP, and the research work for WDYTYA doesn't come close to covering my costs. But it will go some way to paying for the book(s).

    Regards Michael.

    Sorry, but your casualties' records do not survive.

    Islington mortuary records are complete. Finsbury only has around 10 per cent survival (weeded in the '60s).
