|Death: ||May 30, 1943|
During what seemed like an endless campaign of Blitz attack as WWII raged, 14 year old Valerie Grace Taylor was one of the children killed in what was considered one of the worst tragedies to hit the local population of Devon during the year of 1943 - the "Rogation Sunday" attack which destroyed the Parish Church at St. Marychurch, resulting in the deaths of 21 children and 3 teachers. One of the German aircraft involved in the bombing raid accidentally touched the spire of the nearby Catholic Church and crashed into houses in Teignmouth Road, causing the large death toll.
I am presently researching the Taylor surname, and while I find no connection to Valerie, once I discovered her information and that she had no page up on this site, I felt that it would not be right of me to just dispose of her information, and so I am putting it up as fully as I have been able to complete it - I will be happy to transfer it to a family member upon request, and will also continue to add information as I verify it.
Specifically: Burial information unknown
