    The archivists at Barnet are really helpful. They went searching for photos of Barnet High Cross for me. For the cost of a couple of stamps they sent me copies so please do ask them for help.

    ACW2 Marion Silver and ACW1 Violet E B Lewin also died that day (use Geoff's search engine to get other casulties).

    Burriss, Sayers, Silver and Lewin are all registered dead in the Hendon district.

    They are all four, listed as Killed on Active Service in the Flight magazine dated: 19th Ocotber 1944, Casualty list.
    http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1944/1944%20-%202172.html?search=lewin

    KILLED ON ACTIVE SERVICE,—LACW D. Burriss; ACW1 V. E. B. Lewin; ACW2 D. L. Palfrey: LACW J. G. Sayers; ACW2 M. Silver: Cpl. B. W. Troke.
    Wounded OR INJURED ON ACTIVE SERVICE.—
    LACW. M. V. Dunn; LACW. S. M. Philpott.

    Beryl Troke's death is registered in Wandsworth district, London having died on July 6th 1944. A Winifred Troke died same day in Wandsworth, civilan dead. Possibly related.

    Dorethy Palfrey died 27th June.

    The injured Dunn and Philpott may not be related to your three Hendon ladies.

    One other WAAF died on 1 July but not in Hendon. WAAF Vera Jones died in Glamorgan.

    Just logged on and picked up your input Gives me a bit more to work on but will study it tomorrow. Haven't used Geoff's search engine yet but it appears that I should make use of it. For now thanks for your input.

    Tony,

    Just in case your daughter doesn't pick it up there is a MARIAN Silver aged 22 registered in Hendon in the third quarter and also a MARION Silver aged 0 registered in Surrey NW in the same quarter.

    I've corrected my message above with Dave's information relating to Marion/Marian Silver.

    Thanks. Not had a response from my daughter yet, a bit of chasing required.

    I think we have given you all the Death Index entries so you can cut her out of the will. ;-)

    Thanks all for your input, the problem is hopefully solved.

    From the five I had listed for the 1st July 44 - Dora Burriss - Joan Sayer - Violet Lewin & Marion Silver all registered in Hendon were obviously the four casualties of the V1 incident.

    Vera Jones, buried in Glarmogan and, as Dennis advised died there, was the obvious fly in the ointment.

    The delay with my decision was the fact that I had two other problems running alongside this one. I am sure that you are all aware of the problem.

    My thanks again.
