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.

Hi, I have just found that you have a photo of my grandfathers grave on here, Fernley Phillips d.07.06.1940, buried in Ecouis communal cemetery, although the spelling on here is Fernaley. I would love to have a larger copy of this photo if it is available please. I have photos of Fernley as a boy and may have one of him as a man if you would like it for the site?

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.

In loving tribute to my grandfather, Thomas James Bartley,
2nd Lieutenant, 42nd Australian Infantry Battalion, who died in the Battle of Messines, Belgium on June 10th 2017, aged 24, and is buried at Bethleem Farm East Cemetery.

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.

Pierre, Just sent you a e-mail regarding Eric Hughes, he was my dads cousin. Eric was born 1914-1940. My dad William Hughes Evans was only 13 when Eric died. Dad passed away last November aged 86. I attached a photo of Eric, greatly honoured if his image is placed on your website.

Thank you for keeping alive our heroes of yesterday.

Hi, I am trying to contact Neil Smith (Ireland) who left a message about his grandfather, Henry Holdsworth Whitear.

If you are able to forward him this email, I would be very grateful.
Thank you.

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.
 
on 10/04/2014 at 14:22

It might have been helpful if I had mentioned the cemetery!! He is buried at Varennes. Apologies.

Firstly I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all who take care of those who gave their lives so that we exist, I have just discovered that the little information I had about my grandfather was wrong. HIs name was Arthur James Tinham grave/memorial reference I.K.10. Any information you have on how or where he died would be much appreciated. Would it be possible for you to email a photograph of his grave? I hope to find time for a personal visit this year.

Kind Regards,

Allen Tinham.

i also am looking for a pic of joseph mulllineaux dewhurst to display in our church as he is remembered on our war memorial, i presume because his father was the owner of the local cotton mill. i can find no record of him being employed at carrington and dewhurst grove mill in eccleston nr chorley and would appriciate any information you have of him between 1911 and the time he enlisted.

I was very interested to see mail from Catherine Halhead(Australia)
I can well understand the emotion she felt standing at the graveside
I too lost my own father, Basil Maurice halhed, in the Second World War .
My husband and I went to visit his grave at Monte Cassino in 2002 which was a very emotional time indeed. My father never met me but did know about me and my Mother was posting first photo of me when she received word of his death.
What a most awful time it had to be for so many people and what a waste of beautiful lives
Catherine we could be related as all the "Halheads" Halheds" are
May all those who gave their lives for ever be remembered and rest in peace
 
on 06/04/2014 at 19:41

Thank you for including the name of my Great Uncle Clifford Ingleson, Durham Light Infantry, We will always remember him and his peers of that generation that did so much for us, their future generations.

In 1992 I visited the cemetery at Elverdinghe to pay my respects to the grandfather I never knew: Sapper Leonard Maurice Lloyd. Most moving were the inscription which my grandmother had added to his headstone nearly 50 yrs after his death. Quite simply, it read: "I have missed you all these years". Her words must have reflected those of the millions across the world whose lives were forever marred by the obscenity of those 4 yrs which served only to ensure that blood letting became the 20th Century's legacy with all of the subsequent clashes of ideologies in which fathers, sons and brothers were erased - and continue to be.

My great uncle Sergeant John McMullan 10th Batt RIR 15457 died 03 April 1918 aged 21, buried Avesnes-sur-helpe France. Death certificate states 'dd' died of disease. Would like to know how he came to be buried here, maybe a POW, and if there are tours to this area. His medal index card states that his medals were returned. Can I request them?
 
on 01/03/2014 at 23:15

I noticed you haven't included Bray Vale British Cemetery in your list, it seems to be out of the way in most directories of War Cemeteries in France. It is north east of the town of Bray-sur-Somme in France. I know of one Australian soldier buried there, mainly because he's related to me. I will be visiting the western front in April this year and wondered how easy or not it is to get to Bray Vale Cemetery from Amiens?
