Fabulous site,the photos are amazing. To have the names of soldiers for each cemetery must have been a huge task.You honour these men greatly by what you do. Remembering Thomas Duke, Loos Memorial.-

Enfield, Nova Scotia
My Uncle Raymond Benere was killed in France and burried in Belgium, which is quite interesting because the Benere's origionally came from Belgium to Canada. I think this was of some comfort to my grandma after Raymond was killed Uncle Leo and Uncle Willie were also in the war for much longer than Raymond, thankfully they returned.

Does any one have any information about a Lance Corporal John Jenkins of the Welsh Regiment, service number 54787, who died on the 4th September 1917, and is burried at Bard Hospital Belgium. I would like to know how he died, the movements of the troop around that time and anything else you can tell me about either this gentleman or his regiment. I believe this gentleman is my great grandfather, but as yet can not be one hundred per cent positive, if you are privy to any personal information about this gentleman, this may also help decide weather I have the correct person. E-Mail me on andrewrosshay( at sign)yahoo.com as soon as possible please....

In loving memory of my great uncle - Arthur John Gabb. He was the son of William Henry and Maud Mary Gabb of Newport Monmouthshire and the brother of Gertrude, William (Bill), George, Frank, Mary Margaret, Kathleen (my grandmother), Elinor Jane and Herbert Gabb. He was 29 years old when he died. I have several photos of him at home and he was such a kind looking man with the sweetest smile.

He now has a namesake in his great great nephew, Arthur Painter, who was born on 30/11/06!

Gone but not forgotten by his proud family.

My best friend's uncle, Second Lieutenant Raymond Cyril Le Tissier of the North Staffordshire Regiment - 2nd Bn. was killed in action on the 16th of May 1940. He is resting in the churchyard of Sint Bartholomeus Church at Korbeek-Dijle. I think he is the only member of the UK army there. We think he may have been 24 yrs old.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful site, and for giving me the chance to give Robert some more information on his families past.

May all their souls rest in peace. Thank you.

If anyone can give us any more information, we would be so grateful.

My uncle, Flt. Sgt. Bernard Carroll is one of the men buried in this cemetery. Previous to this reconstruction of the grave sites, we had a picture of a single grave marker with the names: Kirkwood, Williams, Twining, Stone, Carroll and Barrett.
The efforts you have take in creating this sites and the efforts of those in maintaining the gravesites is very much appreciated.
I would appreciate hearing from any other relatives of those men buried at the Corbais Cemetery.

What an excellent site. My Grandfather L/Cpl Victor R. Tweney while serving with 1st Canadian Motor Machine Gun Brigade, was one of two machine guns sent into the cemetery at Onnaing by Capt Worthington on Nov 4 1918, to engage large numbers of German troops hold up in the cemetery, During the terrific fire fight that ensued, L/Cpl Tweney was severely wounded but refused to leave his gun and continued firing until re-enforcements arrived. He received the Military Medal For Bravery in the Field during this action at Onnaing Cemetery Nov 4, 1918.

You should be very proud of this site as it recognises the great duty, commitment and loss of life of young soldiers during both World Wars and you should also be proud of the work you have done in photographing the graves.

I found my Grandfather at Valenciennes His name is Matthew Swinburne, Second Lieuteneant Kings' Own(royal Lacaster Regt). He died of wounds on Sept 5th 1918. Three months to the day before his last child my Dad was born. ( Dec 5th 1918) He never saw this son. He and his brothers and sister was fostered out after their mother died a year or so after. I took photos of his grave. I know so little about him yet felt a strong connection to him while I stood there. No photos just a name of a man who is part of me. What a wonderful site this is. So pleased I found it. It was peaceful at Valenciennes and well cared for. Thank you for this. Anne Newcastle upon Tyne England

Thank you so much for such a wonderful website and for your dedication and kindness in taking photographs of Howard Phipps' grave at Quievy Cemetery in France.

My Great Uncle, Howard Phipps, was a Private in the Devonshire Regiment when he was killed on 21st October 1918 at 18 years of age. My Grandmother had always tried to find her little brother's grave but never managed to in her lifetime. Finally he is found, after all this time, and my mother and I have photographs of his grave that have meant so much to us - thank you!!

Merci Beaucoup
