CASUALTIES OF THE BOMBING OF PLYMOUTH

 

T - V

 

Please  note:

These casualty lists are presented in alphabetical order of surnames. Where several people have the same surname, first names are also presented in alphabetical order. Consequently, members of the same family will not be presented as a group. The phrases "see above" and "see below" indicate when a person belongs to a family group.

 

Plymouth's Charles Church today

This is the memorial by which the City of Plymouth chooses to remember the hundreds of its citizens who died - the remains of Charles Church today form a traffic island in the City centre. There it stands, just as it was left after the raids on 21 and 22 March 1941 - something for everyone to think of as they drive around the City.
