Twenty-seven year old Ivy Impett saved her two-year-old son by lying over him when their cottage at Foster's Folly, World's Wonder, was demolished by a direct hit.  Rescue teams worked continuously for three hours before finding the victims.  The boy was found still breathing, but Ivy had suffocated.  A large wooden beam had fallen diagonally across the cellar and had prevented them from being crushed.

See attached report.
It would appear that she was rescued alive. Hope she was aware that she had saved her son. Her husband also injured

In this post you have a photo which looks to be Ivy's grave.  I wondered if you can remember where this actually is?  On the CWGC site it just reports hers and 27 others as being “Buried or commemorated at EASTRY, RURAL DISTRICT. Civilian War Dead”. I can't see her grave or the others listed with her as being allocated anywhere.

The photo of the grave was taken in Ramsgate cemetery. Most of the civilian war graves are in the same area in the cemetery. If you do go there, see if you can find the cemetery keeper, he will point you in the right direction as he did for me.

Edit..
looking at the picture again, I can see next to the grave is the headstone with the name Ticehurst which if I remember was also one of the air raid victims.

What a wonderful name for a place - Fosters Folly, Worlds Wonder! Googling the four words gives a nil return but this forum gives an explanation for the name (see here).
