The following girls are remembered on memorial.
I hadn't found anything on these girls,
I've gone through research and booklet The Great Dudley Port Explosion by Chris Smith & online accounts of the inquiry.


Florence Bryant of 15 west St Dudley Port
(Looks like she was Gladys Bryant mother and in the booklet it explains she was injured in the explosion as she was visiting the factory to query daughters wages)
Don't know when she was added to memorial as it looks like she was still living in 1939
