No worries, just a misunderstanding.

Earliest mention of the Globe I can find is 1769. I've no idea when it ceased being a pub, but as you say the Wimpy was already there in 1964 so that gives us the latest date.

The CWGC site records the 5 people from Gillingham as Mr Thomas Hill and Mrs Florence Edith Hill of 69 Gillingham Road, and Mr William Rufus Thomas and Miss Laura Ann Thomas of 52 Nelson Road; all were buried in Woodlands cemetery.  Mrs Violet Lilian Walters was injured at 50 Nelson Road and died later at St. Bartholomew's hospital.
