William Joseph Moore (c.1919-1943)


According to 1939-1945: Civilian War Dead in the United Kingdom (1954, Imperial War Graves Commission):

MOORE, William Joseph, age 24; of 231 Lodge Avenue, Barking, Essex. Son of Margaret M. Moore, and of Patrick Thomas Moore. Injured 5 December 1940, at 231 Lodge Avenue; died 7 June 1943, at Mill Hill Hospital.

The same publication contains an entry for William's father:

MOORE, Patrick Thomas, age 46; of 231 Lodge Avenue. Husband of Margaret Mary Moore. 5 December 1940, at 231 Lodge Avenue.

No other details were located for the Moore family during research[1], so it is assumed Patrick was killed during an air raid and William was injured. The Mill Hill Hospital in Dalton was a infectious disease hospital.
