(This may be regarded as a Civic memorial- moderators please feel feel to move it if you wish to).

This brass plaque on marble backboard is in Toward Parish Church- see
https://www.warmemorialsonline.org.uk/memorial/284563/

(but unfortunately the photograph is rather dark and cannot be fully read).

There are 10 names of which the first is Daisy M C Wadling of the Army Service Corps.

She does not appear to be recorded on the CWGC, so there's a mystery to resolve straight away.

Daisy Maud Cottingham Wadling

Born 1875 Farnham, Surrey.
Died 5 November 1918 in the Endell Street Military Hospital, Holburn, London.

1901 census
Name: Daisy Maud C Wadling
Age: 25
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1876
Relationship: Daughter
Father's Name: John C Wadling
Mother's Name: Alice Caroline Wadling
Gender: Female
Where born: Hants, Aldershot
Registration Number: 510/1
Registration district: Dunoon
Civil parish: Dunoon and Kilmun
County: Argyll
Address: The Tower

In 1907 she was a Registered Midwife in Argyll and remained on the Roll in 1910 & 1915 but by 1911 the family had moved to Hereford.

Stuart - It might be worth checking with the "In From the Cold Project" to see if she is known to them as nursing staff working in a Military Hospital can now qualify for the CWGC Debt of Honour Register.

Can someone on this forum who specialises in taking cases to In from the Cold take this one up, please?
I know there are several members who pursue such cases.

Locally in Cumbria one of my colleagues, who is blessed with far more patience, takes such cases up. For the foreseeable future I am too busy with just getting memorial records raised, and don't have the time to raise such cases.

Answer from Terry @ IFTC

There is nothing here to suggest qualification.

Nurses serving in army units qualify under the same rules as any other soldier. The confusion may be due to some VADs now being treated as soldiers and can qualify under the same rules.

Those that can qualify are those that are contracted to the War Office or Admiralty. Only a proportion of VADs were so contracted. To work in a military run hospital as a VAD, you had to be contracted.

The list of military run hospitals is known and we have the official list. To see if a case can qualify, you need the VAD’s Red Cross service record available online free (which will give the hospital in which they worked) and the death certificate. It is then up the the data given as for any soldier.

Note that the word ‘military’ in the hospital name does not necessarily mean that it was military run. Some were run by Red Cross/St John’s and they don’t qualify. However, Endell Street Military Hospital was military run. So you need the RC record and the D.C. to progress.

We have been through all the Red Cross VAD records so it is unlikely that a record exists for this person which indicates death in service or due to service but you can try in case it was missed.
