Assistant Nurse Catherine Cook Miller T.F.N.S. has been forwarded as a case to CWGC / MOD as a non comm in service death. She died at the 1st Western General Hospital, Fazakerley, Liverpool on 24th December 1918 (Malaria / Pneumonia). Her details are now in the system.

I am making further enquiries regarding her place of burial, believed to be Dunfermline.

Will update when further details available.

Hi.. Catherine was my Grandmother's sister. She is also commemorated on the Dunfermline war memorial. Catherine was named after her Grandmother who was Catherine Cook. Her name on the nurses memorial at St. Giles was wrong at unveiling. Caroline instead of Catherine and to this day C.C. as her middle initials. I suspect the double C. C. is wrong, part of the sculptors error. She joined the Territorial Nurses towards end of war after her work with Elsie Inglis and her nurses so possibly their records not the most accurate and hence error. I have seen her listed as being born in Glasgow and living in Aberdeen on some WW1 sites but pretty sure born in Dunfermline. Possibly nursed in Glasgow and may have enlisted there.

We (family) have her war medals and would have to check but pretty sure the invites to St. Giles/unveiling of war memorial. We have some newspaper cuttings. She had served in Serbia with Elsie Inglis. She was possibly one of team who supported Serbian troops in Russia.

I notice mention of getting her recognised by MOD we had always assumed this was the case with her recognition on the main war memorial and her medals.

If we can help in this please let me know.

Graham

She was not commemorated by CWGC. I found the omission, gathered evidence and forwarded a case for her to MOD / CWGC and it was accepted as you can see on Armistice Day last year.

If you mail me from the address in my signature I can provide more details.
