Coronation Avenue consisted of a terrace of about 15 shops with five storeys of flats above and behind. The air raid shelter was beneath three of the shops. It suffered a direct hit by a bomb, resulting in 173 deaths. Andrew Whitehead has more details.
The Stoke Newington - civilian war memorial reads: "88 people ("also 9 persons unidentified" at Coronation Avenue on 13 October 1940".
