In memory of my great uncle William Herbert Pitt from Kidderminster in Worcs, who died at Vailly on 21 Sept 1914 aged 28. Already a regular solider since 1904, but rejoined the army when Britain most needed him. A true British hero. Rest in peace!

Thank you for this site and for the listing of my uncle Wilford Horton Govers who is buried at Villers-Bretonneux military cemetery. Is it possible to have a photo of his grave? This site is a wonderful memorial to those who fought and died for our freedom. We should never forget.

We had a pleasant surprise to find this website, especially after returning from the Somme and Belgium Battlefields. Our uncles' Charles Mohr and Augustus Florentius Bosschart Stephens are buried in Courcelette and Guards Cemetery (Lesboeufs) respectively. We left poppies and messages and I believe we are the only members of our families to have ever visited their sites. The cemeteries are all beautifully maintained and people should visit these places if they have the opportunity to do so. Memorable and emotional. May all those soldiers from all countries rest in peace.

Hi Pierre
Great site. Researching my uncle's short history and was pleased to find you have a picture of his and his crewmembers grave sites at Zuypteene, France. His name was WO1 H W Davy RCAF KIA. If it is possible I would like to obtain a copy of the group picture and an individual one of his grave. Am trying to put a history of his life together for my brother and sisters.
Thank you for any help.

Pierre, found your website and was overjoyed to see you had a picture of my great-uncle Pte. Thomas Kilcullen 1707, Black Watch who is buried at Rue-David Military Cemetery, Fleurbaix, Pas-de-Calaise, France, posted under the pictures of the cemetery . I visited last July from Scotland with other family members and we left flowers and a copy of Thomas' picture (I think the one that you have used) and a copy of a remembrance inserted into the Dundee People's Journal in March 1916 by Thomas' family, a year after he was killed in action. Thank you for doing this. Thomas was my maternal grandfather's brother, now Thomas will never be forgotten. It was very moving to visit the cemeteries and I will be returning. They are beautifully kept. Such brave men. Regards from Scotland.

We research a world war one soilder with our school
Mine brought me here to Bailleuel cemetery to the grave of my soilder Walter Staite a swindon wiltshire boy
I never knew him but i miss him
an i will always remember him and like is written on his epitaph 'well remembered by all at home'

This poem is for him
Don't let me fight on in pain
Don't let mem fight on in fear
Don't let the gunfire take its hold
Don't let the darkness near
And if i must surrender don't lay me down to die
Remember me in happiness and with that memory cry
a solider fit for battle
a younglife taken short
a peorsons cry for mercy from a ragging war

Walter Staite is remembered with happiness.

Thank you for you work of remembrance. We are so grateful to see that our great uncle and his comrades are given such attention of your site. My husband and I were the first members of my great uncle's family to visit the cemetery of his enterrment. We visited this August, 2009. He was killed Sept. 2, 1918. It was very emotion to visit him and pay tribute. Keep up the wonderful work.

on 08/11/2009 at 12:14

My great grandad was killed in action on either 24th or 29th Dec 1914 - Cornelius Bamford was his name. I have this service records, but dont really know what happened to his, if he was buried in the grave yard before it was destroyed or anything. One day I wouldlike to visit.
 
on 08/11/2009 at 11:44

Remembering my grandfather Henry Stevenson Ewan killed in the 1WW lies in Ixelles Elsene Communial Cemetry, Belgium. It is nice to see the graves so cared for thank you once again.
 
on 04/11/2009 at 17:05

My grandfather was John Swindle, Rifleman, Royal Irish Rifles, aged 24 killed in action May 29th, 1917 near Ypes. He is buried in Pond Farm Cemetery and left a widow and 3 children. The youngest was just 2 and was my mother. She never knew her dad. It was her dearest wish to visit the grave, but after we came to Canada she never made her dream come true.

Last year, my husband and I had the privilege to visit the cemetery and pay our respects. The cemetery (like all the ones we visited) were very beautiful and the graves very well-kept. Outside the walls, however, the fields were a sea of mud - do doubt similar to the conditions in which he died.

Thank you for a wonderful site - we won't forget you grandpa.

Hello Pierre
My name is Frances Vogan and I am the grand daughter of VOGAN ALLAN DIXON JOSHUA
New Zealand Driver 9/1995 New Zealand Army Service Corps died 29/10/1918 and buried in Awoingt British Cemetry, II. E. 11 I just thought I would share a few things about him with you. Allan was born in Christchurch on 28th March 1893 to parents Samuel and Sarah-Jane Vogan both Irish immigrants to New Zealand. He was from a large family being the 7th Child and the only male to live. He was just 21 when he was shot and fatally wounded. He was survived by his wife Myrtle and son Sidney Glen. My father (his only child) was about 18mths old when his father went to war, so has no memory of his own of his father only what was told to him by Aunts and Grandparents. I would like to thank you for your web page and your time and patience in gathering this information for people like myself. It is nice to know that although i was never able to meet my grandfather in person I am able to find out where he is resting and that he is so well looked after.

MEASEY F G
United Kingdom Private 20285 Northamptonshire Regiment 18/03/1916 II. K. 12.
My mums dad we are stil trying to find out about him and even where they came from. We think it was Tingewike in Oxfrdshire and he was a farmer. His widow died in November 1918 in the flu epidemic .
Nothing for the orpans in those days thrown into the workhouse until they were old enough to work then fostered out as servants and treated like dirt. No land fit for heroes then or now i am afraid to say.
 
on 23/10/2009 at 04:41

Only just found out where my Grandad died. We knew it was in Belgium but we now know where,
He was sapper Cornelius Airley of Dalbeattie in Kirkcudbrightshire in Scotland. He was a Builder and Stone Mason also a Chimeny sweep .
We now have a connection with the place he died unfortunatly due to ill health i will never get to visit the grave,

Hi Pierre,
Looks like i have found my Great Uncle Vincent Baker,we have no pictures of him.Would you know where i could get one in his uniform and maybe some information on him and what happened.

Tracing my Family Tree and i was told that all that was left of this man was his watch.sad but there you go.war.

Vincent's ancestors were German who came to Ireland in 1709 (1700 people called the palatines arrived here) to get away from the problems that were caused by wars in europe etc.

Thanks
