Thurmaston's Evacuees

Thurmaston families took into their homes many evacuees during the Second World War. The first evacuees came to the village during the London Blitz of 1940. Later in the war, during 1944, evacuees again arrived from southern England due to the threat of the German V-1 flying bomb (Doodlebug) and the V-2 rocket.

The above picture shows the Bartholomew family, whose children were evacuated to Thurmaston during the V-weapons threat of 1944. The family lived at Bromley in Kent. The children were housed by families in Thurmaston and nearby Sileby.
