My friend asked me about this lady who is related to him - I have no idea! - could anybody please help?

Anyone know anything or can point us in the right direction.

Mary Jane Miller of Flimby, Cumbria, died Mar 21st at the 32nd Stationary Hospital, aged 28, interred at English Cemetery, Wimereux, France

A starting point: from CWCG

"Wimereux was the headquarters of the Queen Mary's Army Auxilliary Corps during the First World War and in 1919 it became the General Headquarters of the British Army. From October 1914 onwards, Boulogne and Wimereux formed an important hospital centre and until June 1918"

So we know she was probably a QMAA Nurse

Any help would be appreciated

There does not appear to be any Miller apart from Annie C. listed as a QMAAC casualty. And whatever the QMAAC did, and it was a multitude of jobs, they did not nurse.

This is probably one for Jim Strawbridge.

No Mary Jane Miller on my files. Just :-

Miller, Annie Catherine, QMAAC

Miller, Catherine, QAIMNS

Miller, Frances, QAIMNS

Miller, Minnie Dorothea, VAD

Miller, Tryphosa Mary, VAD

None of these tie up with date of death.

the hq of the salvation army with the b.e.f.was also at wimereux, as were several hospitals. very few records of sa women's service survive.they were there as nurses and canteen workers mainly, but they also did hospital visitation and escorted parties to visit wargraves.

Thank you all for replying!

Well - it looks like she wasn't a nurse :rolleyes: I wonder if there would be any way of finding out anything about her? if you happen to have any ideas - I'd appreciate it!

Thank again!

Annie
