Many of the victims were buried in Manor Park Cemetery. The date of their deaths is given in the register as 4 March 1943. Doris David, who was 5 at the time, recalled her narrow escape and the terrible loss of her mother and one of her sisters at the memorial website http://www.stairwaytoheavenmemorial.org/DorisDavid.html Doris’s mother was Mary Ann Hall and her 8 year old sister, Irene, known as Renee. On the burial register (page shown above), they are recorded as ‘Mary Hall’ and ‘Rinie Hall’. The grave details reveal they were buried with 5 other victims of the disaster.
Although the Stairwell to Heaven Memorial is the first to mark the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster, there are two civilian war memorials at Manor Park: one for a school in Leytonstone, and the other for local civilians killed by enemy action. This second memorial was placed by the Mayor of West Ham.
