Great website - my great granduncle Denis Buckley I just discovered *if I am correct, died at Aisne in France, with the Connaught Rangers and is buried there. It is good to know what happened to him and where he may be buried.

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. I am involved in a project to commemorate all those from Hinton Parva and Bishopstone Parish in Wiltshire who served in WW1, and have information about Henry. 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 I am researching my family history, and my great Uncle Wilfred Thomas Chaning Pearce is buried at Derry House Cementary. He died in action 1/10/1917 at the age of 32. He was Captain in the R.A.M.C. I would love to know more about him, if anyone out there can help me.

We are planning to visit the graves of sailors from the Athabaskan this April 2014. We will be at the 70th Anniversary of the sinking of the Atha B at St. Mathieu on April 29/14.
My father served on the Athabaskan and was listed as MIA PD.

I have quite a bit of info on my great uncle Joseph Clarke, he is buried in Ingoyghem Cemetery. Thank you so much for mentioning his name on your site. It was lovely and very moving to see his details.

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.
on 10/04/2014 at 14:13

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.

My Grand Uncle, Percy Charles Harris is buried in
Auchonvillers Military Cemetery. He died 01.07.1916

He was in the Royal Fusiliers(City of London Regiment) He died in action. I hope to visit the Cemetery in June this year. Irene

I am interested in my Great Uncle Ernest Mutch grave at Bettrechiecs cemetery in Nord France. he died 4 days before the war ended does anyone know where he died and which battle?
on 06/04/2014 at 19:57

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

In memory of Private 41726 Robert Reece Burgess who died from bayonet wounds on 6 May 1917. He is at rest in Grevillers Cemetery, his own small piece of a foreign field. He is often in the thoughts of his niece Phyllis Cox.

And commemorated on Holy Trinity War memorial. and his parents bought the Rerdos in his memory.I have tried the Southport Visitor Archives, whilst they give the basic details there is no photographs.

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.
on 12/03/2014 at 17:57

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.

Visit this site in memory of Lieutenant John Spouse 3b7 a distant relation and distant relation of James Mathew Whillis buried in Arras 14/3/17 my Great Granfather

Robert N. Cunningham is my uncle for who I have been named. May he rest in peace. I give thanks to him and all the other brave men and women that fought to preserve the freedoms we enjoy.

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?

Just posted message and should have read Ledringham cemetery not what came out 're george ronald pearce age 17 ' sorry typing error .info 're his warwickshire regiment much appreciated. Thank you .

George ronald pearce aged 17 is buried at Rockingham cemetery and was of the warwickshire regiment . He was my nan brother in law and uncle to my mom. My mom still alive at 84 wants to find out the circumstances surrounding his death. Why are they buried where they are why 4 members of the warwickshire regiment and what tours are organised to visit the grave and that of the large memorial in stores as my great grandad James burden is memorialized on the large tablets from ww 1. Many thanks any info would be appreciated as Ronnie was only 17 and we know little of his bravery . My nan lived until she was 96 still with lots of questions.from Gillian Payne.

On a quiet summer's evening in 2012, I visited the grave of my 'cousin' Edward Bruce Haswell, Lance Corporal of the Durham Light Infantry. Such a lovely, peaceful little cemetery, off the beaten track and surrounded by fields. Would love to hear from any other relatives.
on 24/02/2014 at 21:29

My great uncle Thomas Tingle is buried in Loker cemetry which is shown on this page, my grandmother never got to see where her brother lies, I myself will visit his grave on behalf of our family hopefully this year. I wish she could have seen how beautiful his resting place is. Thank you.

John Henry Archbutt Died from wounds 30/6/1916 he had been out on a scouting party and all were killed either instantly or died later of wounds which is what happened to "Jack" as the family called him.None of the family ever went to France to visit his grave but I will do my best to visit it one day. He was my Great Uncle. He died young as lots of other very brave men did in that terrible conflict

Would it be possible to give me more imformation on 55240 A/Bombbardier L.Wood RFA buried in Givry Belgium.
on 18/02/2014 at 17:45

My uncle Arthur Ralph Cooper is buried at Bailleul East Cemetery. He served with the 2nd Batt Royal Marine Light Infantry for ten years, first as a marine and then as a corporal. He survived both the battles in Gallipoli and Gavrelle.
I visited his grave in 1997 and was moved to tears. He was the first of three brothers to be killed in the Great War.

Many thanks for your excellent site. My father James Alexander vair was on of the MIA PD of the Athabaska. I had the pleasure to meet and talk with the gentleman from Plouescat, who located the final resting place of the Atha B. A true gentleman and extremely proud of his city and those who maintain the cemetary. So tragic that the number of young men involved were unable to return to their family.

In researching my family history, I have discovered that my great uncle, Reginald Bywater is buried in Aire Community Cemetery in France. He was a private in the Norfolk Regiment and is buried in Plot 11.E.22. It would b e wonderful if I could have a picture sent of his grave but I couldn't open the link to email you to request one. I hope someone picks this up and is able to send a reply. Thank you very much for this site. Regards Sally Bishop
on 10/02/2014 at 05:44

Thank you for honouring the memory of so many people who made the ultimate sacrifice. My great uncle Albert Ernest Rennie served with the Canadian military (18th Battalion) and was killed on August 5, 1917 at age 21. The "war to end all wars" was an horrific slaughter; however we must honour and acknowledge those whose lives were cut short and the families that suffered these losses. Peace.
on 09/02/2014 at 11:57

I discovered your website today whilst searching for information on my grandfather, George Micklefield, I was delighted to see a picture of his gravesite in France which my mother (George's daughter) has visited recently. My mother is very keen to contact her cousin Louis A. Micklefield in the USA who posted on your website several years ago, however we do not have a current email address for him. Is there anyway you can possibly send through my email address so we can make contact with him? I look forward to your reply.
on 09/02/2014 at 06:47

Thank you for this guestbook. We have lost three Great Uncles in the Great War and a search on this website has identified two, William Brown, buried at Honnechy Cemetery and Andrew Brown buried at Brandhoek Cemetery, with Thomas Brown buried at Gaza. I am going over to visit them this year, accompanied by my Sister and my second Cousin. Cant wait to pay my respects and visit their graves.

I was allocated the name of Royal Scots Fusiliers Private T F Lochiel in an appeal through the British Legion for Every Man Remembered 1914- 1918. He was buried in your cemetery, and I found details on your really great website, which I did not manage either on the HM Forces page or the one for his regiment. I have traced his birth details through Scotlands People, as I have been building my family tree through them for some years. Private Lochiel was born on 20th June
1892 in Bannockburn in Stirlingshire, and named Thomas Forbes. I hope some family connection may remain .

For 97 years a great-grandfather I never knew, or have ever seen a photograph of, has lain in the bosom of France surrounded by his fellow Brothers-in-Arms. Thank you France for taking such great care of 5137 Pte Jack Sullivan 56Bn (late 3rd ALH Bde), AIF. As the last remaining direct descendent of Jack, I look forward to the day I can stand at his grave and salute his supreme sacrifice. Lest We Forget.
on 25/01/2014 at 17:06

thank you for having my Grand fathers name John Patrick Sheehan
on 14/01/2014 at 19:15

GunnersFarm was the name of my maternal grandmothers homestead in WW1 Surrey,England. Two of her brothers are buried in France due to WW1 and the other lost a leg, and one was a prisoner of war. Your cemetery's name intrigued me. Is there a connection to my maternal grandmother's family, or just a coincidence.
on 14/01/2014 at 19:08

I have found my great grandfather thank to your wonderful site. My partner and myself will be over soon to pay tribute to him from all of our family.
