I found my uncle Bertie hill is buried in terlincthun cemetery . He was killed two months before the war finished. My son is taking me to see his grave in September . I,m so glad because I feel someone needs to pay tribute to him and all the other young men who lost their lives so that we can live free lives.

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.

A very moving site.
My Grandad; Ernest Young of 3rd Dragoon Guards; survived WW1, only being slightly wounded at Frezenburgh Ridge, then later gassed at Loos.. He was one of the lucky ones...
My Brother and I have visited Ypres and located the approximate site of the trench where Grandad was wounded. That was emotional. .. We left a poppy cross on memory of his mates who never made it on his posthumous behalf...
RIP All casualties of this horrific war.

have attached a link for a photo of my great grandfather Driver William Moore 1090. Died and buried in France in WW1 after surviving the hell that was Galipolli. I was lucky enough to visit his grave in Bapaume in 2002 and was humbled by the surrounds and the care that has been taken to ensure these men lay with dignity 100 years on.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were stanunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

To the memory of my great uncle William John Rau who gave his life on 18/8/1917

My great uncle Sydney Albert Dunstan from Boulder, Western Australia, killed 3-6 November 1916 at Flers, is buried at Warlencourt. One of my earliest childhood memories in the 1950s is of a large framed photograph of Sydney hanging in my grandma's hallway, and hearing the sad story of what had happened to him. Like so many of these young me he was not yet married so left no direct descendants but had two nephews later named for him. I have a photograph of him if you would like to add it to your collection.

Thinking today of my great uncle Thomas Hinde, 9th Battalion, AIF, Service Number 6466, who died 21 September 1918 from a gunshot wound to the head. Great Uncle Tom is buried at Terlincthun British War Cemetery, Terlincthun, France, Grave V.A.21.

You paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, for which we are eternally grateful. You live on in the hearts of all members of the Hinde family and will always be lovingly remembered.

My great uncle died on the 1/9/1918 in the battle of the Somme. He was buried in the Peronne cemetery after being moved from another area. Not sure where. ANZAC day is very meaningful especially to remember him and all who gave their lives for our freedom. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

Thank you for keeping alive our heroes of yesterday.

I found your website with a picture of Jesse Allen Mockford. He was my Great Uncle, my Grandfathers elder brother. He was a footman at Hurstmonceux Castle working for Colonel Lowther who raised the Lowthers lambs. Jesse was underage when he joined up. His company commanding officer was the War artist Neville Lytton who's signature is in his pay book. I believe Edmund Blunden the war poet was also an officer in his company he died at Pilkem ridge. His step brother Francis Marshall Coombs died on the 30th June 1916 'The day Sussex died'

Hi Pierre

This is the first time I have come across your site - we as a family have visited my grandad's grave in Estaimbourg, he is Walter Butlin. I am always moved and humbled by how the people of the village tend to these graves, I am due out in May this year with my son, and I look forward to showing him the respect shown to his great-grandfathers and the others.
