Safe from Zepellin bombs in London, died of Flu in Longford

My grandparents moved to London in 1901 where my grandfather was a barrister in the Middle Temple. During the First World War, German Zeppelins bombed them. One of my uncles, 7 year old Benjamin O’Neill, was so terrified that his mother took him back to Ireland to stay with her sister Mrs Minda Webb at her house, Park Place, Taghshinny, near Ballymahon, Co. Longford. It was there that Benjamin caught the Spanish Flu and died.
