Person Male Born 25/6/1905 Died 19/3/1941
Fireman killed as a result of an air raid on Plaistow Road, E15 on 19 March 1941. Andrew Behan has kindly carried out some research on this man:
Frederick Walter Moore was born on 25 June 1905 in Leyton, Essex, an elder son of Kenelm Frederick Moore and Alice Moore née Barnett. His father was a Pianoforte Maker. The 1911 census shows the family living at 124 Vicarage Road, Leyton. The 1939 England and Wales register shows him as a single man residing at the Old Coney Auxiliary Fire Station, West Wickham, Kent and lists his occupation as Coach Builder Commercial. He later moved to 22 Limes Avenue, Carshalton, Surrey, whilst his parents were living at 34 Carshalton Park Road, Carshalton.
He was killed, aged 35 years, on 19 March 1941, together with four other colleagues who were aboard a pump, one of a convoy, that was travelling to a fire in Silvertown and that was obliterated in a land-mine explosion in Plaistow Road, West Ham. He and his four colleagues were buried in a communal grave in St John the Baptist Churchyard, Layhams Road, West Wickham. Probate was granted to his father and his estate totalled £250-4s-5d.
