Mortuary Records

Tyne and Wear Museums Service

 

The following 107 people were killed as a result of enemy action at Wilkinson’s Air Raid Shelter: May 3rd 1941.

The total includes all 103 people listed on the GENUKI Deaths and Fatal Injuries at North Shields on May 3rd 1941 compiled by the late Brian Pears.

In addition there are 4 military personnel victims listed, not recorded on the GENUKI page (which lists only civilian deaths caused by enemy activity).

Details of each victim killed in the shelter and taken to the temporary mortuary at the old Public Bath House in North Shields were recorded on official Mortuary Forms. These are available to view at Tyne and Wear Archives. Forms do not exist for those who died later in hospital from their injuries.

Many of the victims are buried in Preston Cemetery, North Shields.
