Hi - if anyone is visiting Bucquoy Road Cemetery in Ficheux and could send me a picture of my great uncle's marker, I would be eternally grateful. His info is as follows:

BLACK ROBERT C
Canadian Private 207503Canadian Infantry (Alberta Regiment)30/09/1918 Age: 27 III. B. 7.

I plan to visit his grave on the 100th anniversary of his death in nine year's time but would love to have a picture of his marker beforehand.

I'm in Canada so if anyone needs a picture of their relative's marker here, send me a note and I'll see what I can do. I live close to Ottawa where the National Cemetery is and a lot of veterans are buried there.

Thanks,

Marc

I am the niece of Robert James Summers buried at the Cross Roads Cemetry of Fontaine au Bois. Thank you for your diligence in making these records accessible. Robert's elderly sister has only found out now, where he has been buried for all these years! She would love someone from our family now to go to France and take a photo of his grave for her and put flowers on his grave. Thank you. Caroline

Lest we forget. Today is Anzac day. My great uncle Percival Septimus Brew is buried in the Caterpillar Valley. I have a copy of his diary he wrote on the way from the Isle of Man to New Zealand. He was only going to stay a few years and head back to Isle of Man, But the war started and off he went. He was killed at Somme. What a waste. He seemed to be a loving humourous man who didn't deserve this. I will remember him the rest of my life an hope to meat him in the after life. So much waste of life. Please never let this happen again. Even though I never met him I Love him for himself and what he tried to do.

My Grandfather was Benjamin Harper, 323315, died 1/03/17, aged 29. He left a wife Eliza and four children, my father was the youngest, being only 10 months old. My father would have been 93 today. We never knew our Grandfather was killed by "friendly fire" at Hill 60.

F.D.Risidore is buried here, and it is my one objective in life to visit his gravesite. He was with the 3rd Canadian Artillery Division when he was killed in Belgium.

A really good web site, found details of my uncle Sidney Bernard Saunders who was from Pontypridd, S.Wales.
very helpful thanks ***

This is a lovely website. I went to Dunkirk in 1989 and found my Uncle Richard's (Covell) grave (DLI). I only knew that he died at Dunkirk 1940 - but not what date. Amazingly the day I visited was the 1st of JUne - the anniversary of the day he was killed. The cemetry was lovely and so well kept. I would love to visit again

so moved to see my great uncles name Francis Walter hendrick. Never knew he was killed in WW! came across info by accident. An emotional trip. He fell on 23/April 1917. Can i arrange to have a photograph. Thankyou for undertaking such a task. I will make every effort to visit and lay flowers. God Bless you and may all the souls rest in peace. Anna

Your website has a photo of my 1st Cousin twice removed. Ie. Son of my Great Grand Aunt. Lt Philip Edward Michael Vowels MC+BAR.
I recently read Philips service record which is available online via the National Archives in Australia. What this young man went through is beyond belief. He served at Gallipolli and Poitiers was wounded in action twice during his service before returning to the front only to be killed in action.
Lest we forget.

Thank you for looking after Henry Holdsworth Whitear's-one of my paternal great-grandfathers- grave so well.

I salute all who fell in WWI and WWII.

I am proud that one of these heroes helped to bring me up and died at aged 89 in 1977 and that their blood flows through my veins.

I have traced three of my relatives who died in this war through your website, all are listed. Thanks for your efforts in compliling this major piece of work, it has been a great help.

Hi Pierre
This is a great website and a real tribute to those who gave their lives so that we their descendants could enjoy our lives in freedom. My great uncle Hubert Wiremu Steel, buried in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, was one of those, and I am thankful he was able to be identified and have his own memorial stone. Looking at the photos is a very moving experience and makes one realise how much we owe to those who laid down their lives.
Keep up the good work.

Hi Pierre
I am still taking an interest in your website and it gets better. It has to be one of the best websites on your subject, on the internet. The improvements to the site show such dedication from a man who is so sincere about those who fought and died in that terrible conflict WW1.
I am engrossed at this time, in writing the war memoirs of my uncle, Private Horace Angier, 2nd Royal Berkshire Regiment, who was killed at the Glory Hole and who is shown on this dedicated website.
Many thanks Pierre.
Harry Angier.

Thank you Pierre for all your help on locating my Great Uncles grave in Dozinghem Military Cemetery and for the wonderful photographs of his headstone. Your web site is truly amazing and must give thousands of family and friends peace of mind to know where their loved ones eventually found rest.
With much appreciation. Bless you.

You have presented a truly wonderful site - heart wrenching but factual. May I use the photo of the Archway Building of Rue Petillon Military Cemetery (Fleurbaix (Pas de Calais France) please as I am compiling a Book of my family. Edward Peter Murphy was killed 20.7.1916 and laid to rest here.
My grandfather's brother John Bold Green is commemorated on the Menin Gate as his body was never found. God bless your work.

Researching my family tree, I can now add closure to John Voice. So sad that he lost his life so close to Armistice day, but proud that he served his country so that I am free to write these words. I'll visit one day on behalf of my Father and Grandfather, both sadly long gone also.
 
on 15/02/2009 at 04:21

Hi, I'm so proud to be able to add a little personal message in memory of a great great uncle Henry Edward Auckett who died in action in Belgium on 2/3/1918 and is buried at Berks . Many thanks for this opportunity. May God Bless.

My great uncle William Garlick Neville was killed on the first day of the Somme - 1st July 1916 - and is buried at Redan Ridge Cemetary No 2 in Beaumont Hamel. It is lovely to see that he is remembered here. He came from Mortimer in Berkshire and was my grandad's younger brother. Before the war he was the postman for the village and a local bell ringer. He is also commemerated on the web page for the Central Council of Bellringers and on the war memorial in Mortimer. I would like to thank you for putting together this website and to say that we must never forget what our brave heroes did for us so that we can now live in peace.

Congratulations on your very impressive webpage. My uncle, William E. Dailey, who was killed just short of his 16th b'day, is buried in the Sunken Rd. Cemetery (Contalmaison).
I am involved in WWI and WWII research myself and submit photos of men and grave markers to the digitized webpage: Canadian Virtual War Memorial. I appreciate you dedication to preserving their memory.
 
on 02/02/2009 at 16:16

Thank you very much for a very informative website. I have just found details of my Grandfather Walter Tillcock who died in 1916 in Flers, Somme, France. I previously knew nothing about him and have only just found out his first name from my Grand-Daughter who is researching our family tree.
 
on 25/01/2009 at 17:51

Thank you so much for a wonderful website.
I was searching for my Great Grandfather Montague Augustus White of the Deveonshire Regiment 315580 , died in action on 31/10/1918 aged 33.
My search found him immediately with a lovely photo of his last resting place at the Odomez Communual Cemetry in Nord France. Do you have any further information on my Great Grandfather?
I noticed another name Albert Victor Bates. Do you have any further information on Mr Bates?
Once again thank you.
 
on 23/01/2009 at 17:10

Thank you for creating this site. I was able to learn a bit more about my Great Uncle Henry Phillip Aishford that died in Belgium on Sunday, April 23, 1916. The First World War was not something we spoke of when I was growing up, and as a result, I never really knew the details of his death. I still live in Swansea, Canada and I have learned that Henry was the first man from this small village to die in The Great War. I am proud of him.

May he R.I.P.
 
on 20/01/2009 at 09:52

This is an amazing website, which has helped me to locate a member of my family, thus enhancing my Genealogy Project. I was unprepared to find a picture of where my relative is buried.

Thomas Charles Yapp of the Welsh Fusiliers was laid to rest at BOIS-DES-ANGLES BRITISH CEMETERY, CREVECOEUR-SUR-L'ESCAUT on 8 October, 1918 - aged just 19 years.

The information which is given with his listing helps me piece my family history together. I shall look upon Rememberance Day with far greater passion, henceforth.

Merci beaucoup, on behalf of my family, past, present and future.
 
on 14/01/2009 at 19:44
