    Hi Sharonem,
    I hope I have not missed something here however I place the photo of Molly May just in case.

    This is the photo of the grave of Molly May Coveney at Streatham Cemetery, London.
    Cemetery location is:
    Garratt Lane, mid way between Upper and Lower Tooting. It contains scattered burials and those whose graves are not marked by headstones are recorded on a Screen Wall Memorial at the junctions of Blocks F, L, G and M.

    The lady in the photo is Maud Elizabeth Steane, a Canadian from Toronto. She was a qualified Radio Operator, but was refused entry into the Canadian Merchant Navy during the war, so she took a job on the Norwegian Merchant ship. Viggo Hansteen. Just ten weeks after joining her first ship, while at Naples Maud Steane was murdered, shot dead by one of her ship’s crewmembers, who then turned the gun on himself. She is buried with full war grave status in the Allied War Cemetery at Florence, Italy. She was just 28 years old.
