Death in Britain during the WW2 years was not accountable solely to the German Blitz and Doodle-bomb campaigns. No, there were deaths of the kind found not in wartime - plenty of murders, suicides, septic deaths, and accidental deaths - to keep the police and coroners busy for all seven years of the war. One especially busy coroner was Dr Keith Simpson of Scotland Yard, who was assisted for five years by Molly Lefebure, his secretary. Ms Lefebure wrote a memoir in the 1950's of her years of work with Dr Simpson. The book was called "Evidence for the Crown: Experiences of a Pathologist's Secretary". It was republished lately as "Murder on the Home Front: A True Story of Morgues, Murderers, and Mysteries During the London Blitz".
Molly Lefebure - who later went on to write several noted biographies and novels - has written a somewhat chatty, stream-of-consciousness book about her work during the war years. She was hired by Dr Keith Simpson as his "secretary", but her job included helping a post-mortems, cataloging evidence, and writing up his reports. She grew used to gruesome crime scenes and once told her grandson - years after the war - "you can eat anywhere once you've eaten a ham sandwich in a mortuary"!! While there was much death and destruction during the war years, Simpson and his team were kept busy with the other deaths. She was "on the scene" at several terrible murders and seemed to understand the often shady side of life. Prostitutes, discarded wives, "smash-and-grab" robbers were only a few of the assortment of villains and victims she encountered in her work. I don't know that Molly Lefebure had any "deep thoughts" about her work; she wrote about it in a matter-of-fact way.
After the war, Lefebure married her home-coming soldier beau and retired from her duties as Keith Simpson's secretary. She had a couple of sons and began writing other stories, other truths. But I would guess that she never forgot her wartime-service. It was an exciting war she had, and I assume she dined out on her wartime stories for years.
