Others who died in World War II

This page lists those in the forces who died in World War II and have links with Kenilworth but are not on the memorial, together with civilians who died in Kenilworth during the second world war and are recorded by the Kenilworth Urban District. Most died as a result of a stray German bomb, intended as part of the German blitz on Coventry but dropped on Kenilworth in Abbey End, not far from the Memorial. Many of these had travelled from Coventry to be safe from enemy action.
