Thank you for keeping the names of the war dead at Terlincthun alive. Little is heard about this cemetery. My uncle, Michael Patrick Devlin, 2nd battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers is buried there. Died as a P.O.W. on 4th December 1918 which I find so poignant. He might have made it home. What happened to him, what he died from - wounds, disease, I don't know!!! He must have been on the Western Front. If anybody knows anything I'd like to know.

I was born in 1933 so I never knew Charles but in May's later years I looked after her and she often talked about him and how he had been killed on the Somme. As it is the 100th Anniversary of the start of the First World War tomorrow I would just like to say that he is not forgotten.

As the song goes 'when will we ever learn'.

My husband and I plus our two boys visited the grave of Reginald A.Tillcock (died 28.6.17.) last weekend at Belgian Battery Corner - He was my Gt. Uncle. We left a poppy/cross -nothing could prepare us for the overwhelming feeling of being in a place where he and his comrades were buried. We also visited the Flanders Museum and the Menin Gate.
You are still remembered dear Reginald.

My father, Douglas Harrington, has been researching the death of his cousin whose aircraft was shot down over France and he is buried in Noyers-le-Val Cemetery - John Alan Richards. On your website is a photograph that my father would dearly like to have a print of - the gravesite of his cousin and his aircrew. Can that be arranged, please?

I visited my great uncles war grave in 1980 Lance corporal James Acton at Chercq Belgium but I have only read today the action that lead to his passing in 1940. As an ex serviceman myself I cannot comprehend the bravery of these men in this rear guard action to Dunkirk. Obviously I never knew him but I am now so proud to share his surname RIP James.

Pte 52372 H Binns, Kingsman of Liverpool was my maternal Great Grand-Father. My late Grandmother's only memory of her father was when she, along with her elder brother John and my Great Grandmother Mary, waved him off from Liverpool Lime St Station. She never knew where nor how he had fallen.
To "celebrate" my Grandmother's 75th birthday, we were able to locate his resting place via the Wargraves Commission and myself, my Mother and step-father took her to finally see her Dad's final resting place. It was the first time she had even left British shores.
We are now just one of millions of families who are custodians of memories so powerful and so all-consuming, having traced and visited long lost loved ones in this way.
To say it was over-whelming, to watch from a discreet distance as my 'Nan' produced a poppy from her pocket to place against his headstone, while talking softly and longingly to her Dad after all those years, is to hugely understate things.
Sadly, Nan had lost her elder brother in the 1970's, but I like to think that he looked upon us that day with the same mixture of sadness and pride that we shared.
My work has allowed me to visit the grave several times since, while driving around the French / Belgian border anf that the cemetary is so impeccably maintained is a testament to the gratitude still felt by local people.
I still do not know the circumstances of my Great Grand-Father's death. That he is remembered by a marked grave reassures me that, whatever the circumstances, he was recovered from the field of battle and buried with his comrades with the respect and dignity due to them all.
If anybody is able to provide any anecdotal or recorded history of the action seen around Bertrancourt in the Novemeber of 1916, I and my family would be eternally grateeful.

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 wereákids 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.

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

I often think of him while doing the family tree.Tears came into my eyes when I found out where his grave is.

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.
