Note from Bob Bonner.  (F.B. Museum)   MEN 11th
Sep 1943,
OBITUARY for Roger William Broadfield, died on 9th
September 1943 at home address,  26 Windsor Drive,
Timperley,  Husband of Margery. Service at
Manchester Crem  13th September.  At least it
clears the date up,  you gave me 9th Sept,  the
Firefighters Memorial Trust thought it was 3rd. 
Incident was supposed to be at "Fire Brigade
Headquarters,"  but I don't know where that is
supposed to be.   Died from service injures
according to both sources,  I had nothing at all. 
 The short date of funeral suggests there was no
inquest, even in those days of doing them quickly,
so if it was to do with service injuries it must
have been clear cut.

Probate granted at Manchester on the 18th December
1943 to Reginald Tither Organ Builder.   Estate
valued at £1,091.  19.  6d.

CWGC - Fireman N.F.S. Son of Albert William &
Alice Broadfield of 53 Westgate, Hale.   Husband
of Margery Broadfield of 26 Windsor Drive,
Timperley.  Injured in January 1942 at the Fire
Brigade Headquarters;  died at 26 Windsor Drive.
