Edith Rosa Duce

Aldbourne Monuments Digital Record

Memorial stone in St Michael’s Churchyard with the engraving “Death is swallowed up in victory”. Edith was killed, aged 53, on 12 November 1940 in the Sloane Square tube bombing.

At the time of writing (April 2020) we aren’t sure why Edith is remembered in Aldbourne. Research will continue and hopefully by the time this scheduled post appears, a little more will be known about Edith and her connection to the village.
