Nurse Grace Errol Bolton

Grace Errol Bolton served as a nurse with Canadian Voluntary Aid Detachment during WW1.

Nurse Bolton is one of the very few Canadian women who died while serving with an armed force in a military conflict. Her war service file is unavailable, so it is impossible to know what medals she was entitled to, but she must have received the British War Medal and her father must have received the Memorial Plaque and the Memorial Scroll.

1901 Canadian census : Listed as living in Vercheres, Quebec

Daughter of J.W. Boulton and late Annie E. Boulton of 302 Lagauchetiere

If you know more information on this lady, please leave me message so I can add it to her small biography.
