may florence duke. oxhey.
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 18:49 GMT (UK) »
hi everyone,

I am trying to find out about  May Florence Duke born 1899 in walthenstow, baptized in bushey in 1905 and died in 1920. Her name appears on the war memorial but nobody seems to know why. I am going to be doing a village trail around oxhey in June and I would like to be able to commerate her full story as part of the walk. Any information / decendants would be fantastic.

hi,

She died at  bushey cottage hospital in 1920. Her name appears on the war memorial but I cant find anything about her adult life. Is there anyone who is related or has photographs of her and her family.  It would be lovely to bring her story alive and commerate her.

thank you,
