TWENTY CIVILIANS KILLED
in the bombing raid
The photographs of the bomb damage here are from the collection of the
Newmarket Local History Society
|It is likely that 7 Servicemen were also killed, so the next task is to identify them|
This will be more difficult as none of their deaths were registered in Newmarket and it is not even known on which day they may have died. Being war time very little of such information would have been made public.To this day no-one knows what the Army meeting at the Memorial Hall was about. It would have certainly brought more soldiers to the town centre, the officers drivers were unlikely to have stayed with their vehicle. The Grosvenor Arms and the White Hart may well have been a most welcome sight.
