Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps
Service number 11077
Died on the 30th October 1918 aged 34 years.
Buried in Uckfield Cemetery, Uckfield, East Sussex - grave Reference: R. 2078.
Daughter of Mary E. Howell, of Church Square, Harrogate, Yorks, and the late Richard Howell.
Worker Emma Howell is buried in Uckfield, East Sussex. I cannot find reference to her death or funeral in the newspaper archives. Uckfield and nearby Maresfield had huge military camps in the areas surrounding the towns and I would assume that Emma Howell was working in some capacity in one of those.
The CWGC index gives her next of kin as her mother, Mary E. Howell, from Harrogate. The Harrogate War Memorial is massive and is officially called the Harrogate Cenotaph. Emma Howell is commemorated on the front centre panel -"Panel 2" and her full name, not just her initial, is on the memorial. There is a photograph of every panel and each name on the site - Harrogate Cenotaph
- scroll down to a bit see Emma Howell's name.
There were over 57,000 women serving in the Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps in WWI - unfortunately (quote from Wiki) "After a German air raid in September 1940 most of the service records did not survive. Those which did have suffered fire, water and mould damage. The National Archives in Kew, Surrey, digitised these to prevent further damage and they can be searched and viewed online" - but I can't find Emma Howell in the NA index.
