From: The ‘Baby Killers’ German Air Raids in the First World War by Thomas Egan (Pen & Sword 2002)
“Eight explosives and a pair of incendiaries were dropped on the town in the space of fifteen minutes, most falling on the west of the town centre in a north-south course along Spring Lane, Chalk Lane and Mill Road. Private Hubert Hardiment, who was on leave, was killed at the back door of his landlady’s house as he went to investigate the attack; Harry Frost was fatally wounded as he watched the raid in his garden; at another house a blast killed Mrs Dureall, whose husband was away serving with the 3 Sussex Regiment, and two of her five children, aged three and five, in her bedroom. Elsewhere in Bury, bombs landed near the railway line by Eastgate Street, behind St Mary’s Vicarage at the top of Southgate Street and beside Prussia Lane. In the last place the elderly Henry Adams and his fifteen year old son died.”
I would also recommend that you find yourself a copy of Zeppelins Over Bury by Gareth Jenkins pub. by Moyse's Hall Museum, 1985. This cracking little soft-cover book deals with both raids on Bury (the April 1915 raid and, of course, the raid you are researching) and includes maps and photographs.
Good luck with your quest!
