Did you see this Lisa?
Thanks. The duggan is quite a common name really. It's the place they grew up and the name together that's of interest to me. We may be related tho.Hi Lisa there was a Jim Duggan i worked with at Severn Trent Water, i was a Joiner and he worked with the gangs putting new pipes into the ground , he also did a lot on the union side.

Lyn, Whitfields was a bedstead maker factory in Watery Lane, so possibly Hannah worked there at the time?

Would it be beacuse she died in Worcestershire Lyn? The UK Civilian list where I found those 2 entries is divided up into the different counties. Bit of a mystery why she was taken there, unless she too was doing war work. Do you know the dates Bordesley Green was bombed?
Interesting Lyn, i hadnt spotted you could click on it for more information. So perhaps Hannah died instantly but Nellie was taken to the Emergency hospital in Worcestershire, as she died a month after Hannah?
lynn i would think that is highly likely yes clicking on the extra info can be very useful info wise...again so sad that both hannah and nellie were both working at whitfields at the time it was bombed and nellies son ronnie lost both his mom and his nan...yet another case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time
Wow thank you..so I assume if I want to apply for a death certificate for Nellie i do so from Bromsgrove registry as Nellie died Barnsley Hall in bromsgrove..?yes its hannahs obituary lisa this is from the birmingham air raids site ...watery lane is off garrison lane..as you said earlier nellie duggan died in hospital from her wounds...all very sad...interesting to read that hannah did not die at the house where she lived so it looks like she was visiting someone in watery lane when the bomb hit being in the wrong place at the wrong time which i have seen so many times
Hannah Tovey Address 6 Block, 6 House, West Holme, Garrison Lane. was killed on the 22 November 1940 at Whitfields, Watery Lane. Hannah was 60 years of age when this happened.
Is that a spelling error on Nellie's last name? It says Duggins not Duggan.ahh well done lynn i have now found both nellie duggan and hannah tovey on the BARRA site...they must have both been working at whitfields bedstead makers when it was hit...on the 39 register nellies occupation is an assembler

Yes I wondered as to why Bromsgrove ...although I have read somewhere Barnsley hall was used as a military hospital during ww1 and then again during ww1Would it be beacuse she died in Worcestershire Lyn?
