Hazel May Barber was born on 19 January 1919 at Brighton, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of Leslie Robert William Barber and Victoria May Griffiths.
Hazel May Barber was a nurse.
Although she never married she did have a boyfriend during WW2 who was a Canadian serviceman. Although she wrote letters to him after he returned to Canada she did not receive any replies. According to neighbours she was bitter to her father who she thought had burnt the letters sent by him (although most think this not to be true and that the Canadian was probably already married).
Hazel May Barber died in 1975 at Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, Sussex, England. She died of diabetes, but also had tubercolosis (TB).2
