I know of two: Edith Cavell at Swardeston and Susannah Hall at Reedham.

Does anyone know of other women who are commemorated on Norfolk Memorials?

There are several women's names on the Heacham Social Club memorial - but that includes all those from the village who served, not just those who fell (who are also remembered on the memorial at St Mary's). All of the women named on the Social Club Board (which can be seen here ) survived.

Martha Hannah Beech. Munitions worker. On the alter rail memorial at St Hild & St Helens Church Dawdon, Seaham.

Not Norfolk I know. She had a sad and short life.

Hi,

My Aunt, Gladys Helen Cobb was with the QMAAC, attached to the RE at Richborough Port. She died on 12th Feb 1919 at Stonar Camp [Richborough] Hospital of influenza and toxic jaundice. She is on the Gaywood war memorial. I have her death penny.

Glady's mother gloried in the wonderful name of Kerenhappuck Cobb - a bible name. Nick I have some information on your aunt and would be pleased if you got in touch (jimstrawbridge AT coinsale.fsnet.co.uk). Until you have 10 postings communication through the message servicing on this site is limited.

LATER - just to round off my comment I am now in direct contact with Nick.
