Nursing Sister Jessie Emily Wakefield

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all, 

 

Still in my research on the women who are buried on the Western Front, I'm calling out for help on this one: there seems to be not much to be found about Nursing Sister Jessie Emily Wakefield... the British nurse who served with the Territorial Nursing Service and died in Etaples in February 1919, NOT the ANZAC nurse!! 

Is there any Pal who could help me out on this one?? Anyone have some information about her??? 

What we know from the CWGC database is that she was the daughter of Richard and Emily Wakefield, of Maidstone, Kent, that she was 39 years of age when she died (and considering the date I’d say from the flu) and that at some point she was awarded the badge of an Associate of the Royal Red Cross. 

 

Thanks in advance!! 

 

M.
