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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi, My Grand Uncle Hubert Holroyd Charles Wareham is buried here. We visited in 2004 as a treat for my father's 75th birthday as he had never known where Hubert was buried. I'd be glad to chat to anyone interested in anyone with the name Wareham. Thank you for this site, best wishes. Chris Wareham. My web site for family tree research is www.familywareham.co.uk Would it be ok to display this as part of the message? Thank you.

Have just noted the VC Corner Cemetery and Memorial details on IN MERMORy. Pierre, congratulations on the website: it is a sound idea, and you have obviously put a considerable amount of work into its development.

I am interested in this particular cemetery and have been working toward encouraging the British and Australian governments (in conjunction with the CWGC), to identify all unknown Great War burials related to the Battle of Fromelles which was launched on 19 July 1916.

My great uncle Edgar died from wounds on 5 November, 1918 the day after being shot by sniper fire during the Battle of the Sambre . He was a lieutenant with the 5th West Riding Duke of Wellington's Regiment.
Edgar, from Keighley in West Yorkshire, was the younger son of John and Mabel Clapham. He joined the local Territorial Regiment in October 1914, and he received his commission in January 1917, being gazetted to the rank of lieutenant in August 1918.
Edgar is burried in Awoingt British Cemetery, near Cambrai.
When I retire I hope to pay a visit to his grave.

Recent research has revealed that my great uncle John Bellamy 26855 Pvt Kings Own Royal Lancaster regiment died of wounds 15th January 1918 near Arras is buried in Duisans cemetery, plot V.E. 34 . John was, according to the 1st battalions war diary, one of five casualties following an H.E. and gas shelling attack on the night of the 15th January whilst the battalion were digging new reserve trenches.

A photo of his grave would be fantastic and would add to the testimony that I am writing for my family and in particular my Father, Thomas John who is John's nephew.
