In memory of my great uncle, George Lambert Cox, born in Yorkley Slade, Gloucestershire, March 18, 1891 and died in battle March 28, 1915. I never had the chance to meet you, but recollections of you have been handed down for 3 generations now and you are in your family's thoughts, especially at this 100th anniversary of WWI.

My daughter in law found my uncles grave at Le Grand Hasard Cemetery in Morbeque about 7yrs ago. My son took us to visit it and it was an emotional experience. Uncle Sid (sidney james dobson) was my late mothers brother and my grandma talked about him to us when we were kids and had a big photo of his grave on her wall. Then it was a wooden cross but now has a headstone. They would have been so proud finally a family member had visited. Oh that they had been able.to do it. We have just returned from a 5day coach trip to the Great War Cemeteries, a truly moving and humbling experience . Uncle Sid died 29th July 1917. May he rest in peace. With grateful thanks to all the victims of WW1 and W W2

Thanks for this website. My great grandfather mercantile Capt. George Webber is listed on the Beaumont Hamel monument, his schooner was sunk by the Germans in early 1915 in the Mediterranean. His son Hubert is also listed, died in 1918 in battle. My dad was named after his uncle Hubert.
Thanks again... it took me a while to find out what happened to these men.

Elijah Bithell buried in BLANDAIN Communal Cemetery was killed on May20th 1940. He was with the Royal Artillery and came from Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire . He was my mother's fiance and after his death she never went out until dragged out by her older sister in December 1944 when she met my father. They married after 3 months ( wartime) and I was born 12 months later! She never talked about Elijah and incredibly I went to school with her niece who innocently shocked me, ( we were both 10 years old) by saying that my mother was once engaged to her uncle. My mother's maiden name was Elsie Jeffries.

I have just discovered this site through a new and wonderful friend. He pointed out a post by Des Brady, where he says he has a WW1 medal that belonged to John Treacy. John Treacy was my great grandfather. If i can get in touch with Des Brady i would so appreciate that! God bless all those wonderful men who served our countries so valiantly.

Thank you for such an informative site. After starting my family history, I have just discovered that my great grandfather fell on 18/08/16 at the Somme and is buried at Delville Wood Cemetary, Private Frederick William Ford, R.11811 of The Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry - from Islington, widow-Edith Kate Ford. I never knew him or about him as my father was orphaned, I would love to find a photo of him or any of his family. Rest in god's loving arms. x

Elijah Bithell buried in BLANDAIN Communal Cemetery was killed on May20th 1940. He was with the Royal Artillery and came from Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire I think he is the only British soldier buried there and, surprisingly, does not have an official white headstone.. I went to school with is niece after the war.

Thank you for keeping a record of the dead from The Great War. William Reynolds would have been my Great Uncle. More importantly, he was my Grandmother's favourite big brother and I grew up hearing stories of his exploits before he joined up and went away to the war. I am coming to visit the battlefields and graveyards of the Somme next week and I will remember him.

Excellent site! I started doing research on an alum, who was one of many that went to fight in WW1 and was injured in the Second battle of Ypres, dying in the Boulougne Hospital on May 24, 1915.

Lt. Daniel P. Stephenson, B.A. (2nd. Class Hon. Juris Hons.) was a sportsman and academic of renown at Wolmer's Boys' School and went on to be a Rhodes Scholar at Lincoln College (1911-1914).

Any and every bit of information I can gather I would like to use to tribute him in a small e-book which will publish on the 100th anniversary of his death in May 2015., under the auspices of our non-profit Wolmer's Cricket Initiative who help the school's cricketers.

We have a profile of him in our 'Wolmer's Cricket Commemorative' but I still need a lot more information on him and if possible any other photos and details.

I aam available by Skype: paracletus,gfr

I am trying to find out more information regarding my Great Uncle PS Graves Sqdn 619 Flight Engineer RAFVR, SN1621464.
My Nana passed away several years ago believing that he was shot down over France on his way back from a bombing mission. He was in a Lancaster Bomber ND957 (I believe) which came down over St-Pierre on the 7/8 Jan 45. Here are the other crew members:
C K Flockhart, R W Price, R W Keightley, E A Smith T L Letchfors and A F Murdoch.
After a little research it seems they may have collided with PB586 on the way back home. Both crew are buried in adjacent graves.
If anyone can help me find out more information I would be extremely grateful. Kind regards

My great grandfather Joseph Henry Thompson of the Kings Liverpool regiment is listed on your site. Thanks to your website his grandsons Arthur and John were there at his side last week. His great grandson Michael and great great grandson Daniel were there near Ypres two years ago. We owe this family man our lives and we remember him with a tear in our eyes and wish he had dodged the bullet that killed him. The war graves commission do a marvellous job in Belgium and at this anniversary we must never forget the sons who died for our freedoms.

My great uncle Sgt George Smith, 1st Battalion of the East Surrey Regiment, is remembered at the Dunkirk Memorial. He died on 21 May 1940 (aged 30). I gather he was killed five days before the battle and evacuation of Dunkirk commenced, but I do not know the circumstances or location of his death.

I did not know him, but I frequently remember him.

On this day as we remember D day I also remember my uncle Joe. He died on the 28th March 1942. He was on HMS Campeltown which rammed the harbour at St. Nazaire to stop the German u boats from leaving. He drowned trying to save his friends. His body was swept down the coast. He is buried in a small cemetery on the island of L Etienne
He was 20years old. A great swimmer and footballer. He was due to play for Glasgow Rangers but was drafted. My grandmother got word he had died on his 21st birthday. He had told her that if every family gave one member the world would be saved. He gave his life by volunteering for the raid. He trained in Canada especially for the raid. He was sorely missed.

We will remember with pride.

Albert Ives. I am researching the background of all the men on our war memorial in Crondall who gave their lives in WWI. Albert Ives was in the King's Royal Rifle Corps and his grave is in the Dendermonde Extension cemetery grave no 3 of 17. I suspect he was taken prisoner of war by the Germans on 12 April 1918 and died of wounds and on 26 April 1918.
Grateful if you could send me a photo of his gravestone.
