There were many from Iriland in U K Forces who died in WWI & WWII
but apparently only a few from Ireland (North & South) -judging by names in guest book - have visited this amazing record. So will try to educate my country men/women to visit this site and to see the honour bestowed on those who gave their lives for our freedom . Thank you Pierre and all involved.

My nans wish was to find and visit her fathers grave who died through the first world war in 1918. She never did so my father and I are hoping to visit. It is great to access infomation on sites like this to visit and pay respects to all who died. They should never be forgotten!

My Mum will find it very moving to see a photo of the grave of her cousin Thomas McCord Campbell at Nossengem. If you could send me a large photo of the group of graves in Nossengem as well as one of Tom's own grave that would be great.

Thank you for creating this website. I have my grandmothers memorbilia and I believe it is her brother, that is Pte. Tom Hardaker 219755, that is listed on your site, I have his Canadian memorial cross listing him as Sgt T. Hardaker with the same ID number. As a fellow veteran of overseas deployments I do appreciate the time and effort you have given to keep all our fallen heros alive and in our hearts. Thank you.

I visited my great uncles grave at Caterpillar Cemetery Longuval last week. I can add that JJ Mitchell is in fact James John Mitchell. He was born in Liverpool and died in the fields nearby following the attack on Guillmont that started at 4.20 am on 8/8/16. The casualitiesd were heavy due to shelling and machine gun fire. I can't even imagine what it was like. He had been in France for approximately 14 months. This attack also saw Noel Chavasse earn the first of his two Victoria Crosses (VC'S)....who knows...maybe they met ? I visited many cemeteries in a week and each one, no matter what time of the day I went, was immaculate as if there was a state visit due that day, a great tribute to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. If you go to any of the cemteries, do what I did and say thank you to the gardeners. One of the saddest moments for me was a row of soldiers who had all died on Christmas Day......Essex Farm cemetery just outside Ypres in Belgium.

I am the great granddaughter of James Patrick Egan, buried in grave #20 at CHERISY ROAD EAST Cemetery (Heninel) (Pas de Calais France). Thank you for your website.

Thank you for the wonderful work you have done to remember our war dead. Lest we forget!
on 06/05/2009 at 22:46

Thank you so very much Pierre for the tribute to my Uncle George Warren and his Halifax crew on the Gosselies, Belgium, page. George's sister is still with us and she'll be thrilled to see her dear brother's photo on your website. It was taken in Ottawa, in front of my late grandparents' home, just before he went overseas.
I'll be back to Belgium in September to visit, once again, George's resting place, and the family who kept for us his charred parachute for almost 65 years. A part of George is now back with his family.

I have been researching my family history and their involvement during the wars that have occured. It was by grate surprise that i came across my Grate Grate Grate Uncles name appearing on this web site. I asked my family and no one knoew that he was killed during action in 1918 this led to me being able to obtain copies of his service records and this confirmed that he was and that he is beried in the becon cementry. I would like to say a verry big thank-you for this web site and i look forward to learning more about him now

Always sad to see so many soldiers names that lost there lives, my great uncle was one of those who is resting in this cemetry, private Brian Freail 6018186, Queens own Royal West Regiment, died age 21 i think this is the plot number 5.F.17, will come over and visit and pay my respects to such brave men.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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
on 09/04/2009 at 21:08

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
on 07/04/2009 at 18:10

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.
on 26/03/2009 at 23:38

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.
on 26/03/2009 at 09:47

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.

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
