Two women who served during WW1 who died on 26th September 1918

TWIST, Remembering Nurse, DOROTHY PEARSON TWIST, No. 82/T/118 of The Canadian Military Voluntary Aid Detachment. Nurse Twist died on 26th September 1918 at the age of 29. Her parents were Pearson Gill Twist and his wife, Julia Twist, of Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada. Nurse Twist was buried in Aldershot Military Cemetery in Hampshire, UK - Grave Reference: AG. 374.   As she is so far from home, I wonder if her grave receives any visitors?

WALKER, Remembering Worker (equal to the rank of Private) WINIFRED LUCY WALKER, No. 13980 who served with The Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps (QMAAC) and was attached to the Royal Engineers in Portsmouth. Winifred died on 26th September 1918 and was buried in Milton Cemetery in Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK - Grave Reference: M. 6. 24.
