hi to all

I am looking for casualties who may have died with Elise Margaret Kemp in a bombing raid on a hospital in Godewaersvelde   
"Killed in a bombing raid by a German aircraft whilst working as a nurse at the 37th Casualty Clearing Station at Godewaersvelde, Flanders (detached from the 58th CCS) on the evening of 20/10/1917. Three patients and three orderlies of the RAMC were also killed.
looking for the other victims 

any help would be appreciated 

thank you 

Augustin

Have you looked at the 37 CCS War Diary  WO95/499/5  , free to download if you register with National Archives. Link is here.

It does list the killed and wounded in this bombing.  (4 killed 8 wounded) plus good description of event.
