CIVILIAN CASUALTIES OF THE BOMBING OF EXETER

 

Air Raid attacks on Exeter began in the August of 1940 and peaked with the raids on the nights of May 3/4/5 1942. The damage inflicted on a City which occupied a relatively small area of land was severe; the result was widespread devastation and many casualties.

After each raid, the survivors had to cope with the problems of identifying the victims and then, as required under English Law,  obtain death certificates for them. Alice Ellery (see below) lived the life of a recluse - only through the persistence of her sister-in-law who, for weeks afterwards, visited the nearby Post Office to ask if Alice's widow's pension had been collected, were her remains eventually recovered and identified. 

Those victims whose remains were unidentifiable or had vanished without trace were treated by the police as missing persons. The CID took statements from witnesses who had last seen them, and others who  testified that the missing individual had not been seen or heard of since so that death could be presumed and a certificate granted - a process which often took months. 

The list below contains the name of a 12 month old baby - Peter Messenger - whose parents were never identified. He could not have been alone in Exeter. So it seems there will never be a definitive list of casualties - many other victims may have died in basements and cellars or simply have vanished in the impact of an explosion. Perhaps the amazing thing is that, in spite of the chaos and confusion , there exist lists of victims  at all.

We have drawn from the following sources for a listing which is as complete as we can make it at this time and record our gratitude to their compilers:

1. A supplement to the Express & Echo, published Saturday 4 May 2002, marking the 60th anniversary of the May 4 1942 incident. This contained a list of 265 victims which had been compiled by their reporter Patrick Phelvin in conjunction with Brian Carpenter of the Devon Public Record Office. This was based on a hand-written card index field at the time in Exeter's Town Clerk's office. We are very grateful to the Editor of the Express & Echo for permission to use this list.

2. Material relevant to Exeter found in the West Devon Record Office when researching the victims of Plymouth's bombing raids. Our thanks to Devon County Council.

3. Material contained in two books recording Exeter's bombing by Peter Thomas - Fire on the Wind published in 1992 and the revised reprint of this book published in 2002 which was renamed Exeter Burning. Peter was given access to police records previously hidden from public view which provided much additional information as well as names. The book contains stark photographs from Peter's collection, graphically illustrating the tragedies listed below.

4. A listing compiled by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission at the time of the inclusion of victims on their casualty database. The source for this listing is not known.

5. Our own research.
