400922 - Unaccounted airmen - 22-9-1940Hi Henk Muir,24, is registered at Trowbridge, Wiltshire and could be connected to K5883. The Swains are all registered at Hendon, this could be an air raid on the airfield hitting nearby civilian accommodation or Married Quarters or a vehicle accident or some such incident.Richard Swain is recorded by CWGC as Civilian War Dead and as being killed at 211 Gt North Way which is in Hendon and is the same address as Irene Swain. The Hendon Municipal Borough is not a Cemetery but merely the way that CWGC records Civilian casualties in the area in which they died. It is possible that all 3 Swains were cremated together.
