In memory of Arthur Frederick Hyde. Born in Wiltshire and emigrated to Australia. He was back in 1916, fighting in the fields of France with the 18th Battalion, Australian Imperial Force. He was in the trenches for the entirety of the Somme campaign. Just 11 days before the end of the campaign, he was killed by sniper fire in "no-man's land" on November 7th 1916. He was 25.
Generations later, we will never forget your sacrifice and I'm proud to bear your name as my middle name.

Gunner Ellis Spencer is buried in Carnoy Cemetary. He died on the Somme on 12/07/1916. Thank you for the beautiful grave and the care that is still taken with all the cemetaries. We will think about them all this month as it is now 100 years ago that we lost these brave men. Ellis was my Grandmother's brother and my generation are so grateful to him and all those that fought in such a terrible war.

I have only just found this website and find it a useful link to my Grandfather John Gardner Hayes who was gunner in the 90th Hvy Bty Royal Garrison Artillery. He died of wounds on 4th October 1917.
I knew of the burial site before visiting Ypres in 2002 but only coincidently came across the enclosure whilst on a business trip. Since then I've visited his grave 3 times and plan to be there on 4th October 2017 to mark the 100th anniversary of his death.
If anyone can supply facts about the 90th Hvy Btry RGA and where they were at that time I would be very grateful. Bob

My uncle, Leading Aircraftman James Francis McMaster 538667 is buried at Angoulins Communal Cemetery France. He died on the 25/06/1940 I take it for granted he was shot down as the RAF cant give me any information, it also states my uncle Jim was born in France, he was actually born in Belfast Esmond Street Shankill Road, they dont even know his Dob. His father was James McMaster who fought in the 1st world war with the Royal Irish Rifles, his Mother was Margaret, Brothers Harold, William, Sisters Evelyn, Susan and my Mother Elizabeth. I am trying to get my uncles birth certificate but I think it might have been destroyed, so I would be grateful if anyone else had some information.

St Souplet Cemetery - I have some information regarding James Henry Turton died 25/10/18. He was the son of Andrew and Elizabeth Turton of 16 The Terrace, Bawtry Road, Canklow, Rotherham. He was born about 1899 in Ackworth Yorkshire. His name is also on the Brinsworth and Canklow War Memorial in St George's Churchyard in Brinsworth. I would be grateful if someone could obtain a picture of James Turton's grave for me as I am doing a project on the WW1 names listed on the War Memorial.

Ray, I have just read your tribute to Geoffrey L Mills, is your Dad still alive ? You may be aware that he was honoured in a ceremony in France on 20/6/2007 in that town, and he is buried in Clichy. Surprisingly, I picked this up as I am a neighbour to his sister Betty, still alive. Betty was unaware as to what had happened to Geoffrey her older brother. He was shot down over Bois D'Arcy enrolee to bombing Acheres rail depot - I don't know if this will ever reach you, but it would be nice to connect the two of them perhaps ? Please contact me if any possibility. Betty is still in Walthamstow

I have just purchased the solid brass Somme 100 poppy lapel pin. It is in commemoration of Private 13317 Albert Key of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. He died on the first day of the fighting. In addition to the many others who lost their life whom we remember, we will now have a special place in our hearts for Albert. If anyone has any more history of Albert we would love to hear it.

I don´t know how to amend this but Francis Samuel Langston was a British airman. I am based in Spain.
 
on 01/06/2016 at 08:43

Thank you so much Pierre for remembering my great Uncle Francis Samuel Langston who died with his crew in their Halifax on the 11th of April 1944. I know during the 1940´s his brother Harry spent many years trying to locate the crash location so it is amazing to see a photo of the actual plane. What a terrible loss of life all of them young fit men. I know they were on their way home from their mission when they got hit. My Great Uncle had only been married a few weeks. This summer we are going to visit his grave. It was a long time ago but he has not been forgotten.

My uncle is buried in the cemetery Douglas Mundy I was named after him. My dad his brother has visited the grave before he passed away, something he had always wanted to do. I intend to do the samewithin the next 6months something I have always wanted to do.
I can only thank the village for the way they look after the graves. I hope, when I go I can thank them personally.

Thinking of my great uncle, Nathaniel Gallager, died April 30, 1917, buried Strand Military Cemetery, Plat 1 Row B.
May you eternally rest in peace. You would have been so proud of your daughter, and grand children. Although we never knew you, we heard lots of stories. My Mother was named after you, and my middle son is a splitting image of the photos of you.

Pierre

great website! Whilst researching for Preston remembers into John Bradley 10511 Loyal North Lancs Regt killed 14/09/1914 I found him on your site but his name is spelled BRADLY, not your fault as it it spelled this way on the CWGC site also so it took some finding. Just wanted to let you know in case someone was looking for him.

I just saw my Fathers name & a few particulars concerning him. I, from, the bottom of my heart to the top of it, need to THANK You so much for adding his name to your list. I was 9 yrs. old when he died, so know very little about him. My siblings & myself lived in an orphanage here in Chatham Ont. Canada & not much contact with anyone in those days. I have friends that live in Bruggs near the cemetery in Adegem, their names are Margareite & Wilfreid Moore & they are so kind to take care of my Fathers gravesite as well they go to France & & also take care of my grandfather,s gravesite in Baeuiel France, he was my Fathers Father & died in WW1 on December 8, 1915. It is through the generous heart & soul that so many SOLDIERS are remembered by people like yourselves., Thank You from myself & my family, many Blessings always

Hello
I just googled my uncles name John Eastern Sharpley & the place he was buried -vouzon communal cemetery, & your site came up, with a photo of his grave.... It was very poignant as I have spent the afternoon with my parents looking through the original documentation, and letters from the French family ( matolet domaine-du-puy vouzon ) who found my injured uncle after the Lancaster bomber crashed & kept him safe till he died. The Germans let the village people give him a funeral & 200 people attended . We have an original photo of the grave so to see the modern grave has been interesting. Thank you very much Aly

Hello Pierre

I have just volunteered to do some research for Northumbria War Project, which remembers all the local men who died during WW1. I have just found your site regarding Mons (Bergen) Communal Cemetery which is where one of my named soldiers is buried. Private 34823 John William Douglas serving with the Northumberland Fusiliers died 26 March 1918 You have published photos of the Communal Cemetery

I am writing to enquire whether you have a photo of Grave VIII E.4 which is where John William Douglas is buried, and if you would allow the photo to be reused on the Northumbria War Project site in the future, once my research has been double checked?

Obviously when I hand my research in, I would like to mention your site and whoever had taken the original photo so could you please send me those details too.

Thank you so much for a wonderful site.
Christine
I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Sapper Reginald Wright, 106393, 227th Field Company, Royal Engineers, my grandfather died 28th March 1918 when my father was aged 4 years old. He is remembered by my generation and this will continue with his great grandsons (Mark & Simon Wright) when we visit Heath Cemetery on the 28th March 2016 to mark the 98th Anniversary of his death.
I never knew my grandfather but my father was my hero and so is he.My wife and I have visited many times and we will continue to do so. Heath Cemetery is a credit to the CWGC and reflects the true feelings of compassion shown by everyone who cares and retains the memory of the fallen.

Alfred Swanson who was 37 when he was Killed in action and buried in Belgium in the Torreken Farm Cemetery, was sadly missed by all those who loved him including his mother, his wife Ellen, and children Charles, George, Hazel and Ellen (his youngest daughter). His future grandchildren wished they could have known their grandad and all pray for all wars to end, and the world to be in peace.

Hello. I thought i would repost this in the hopes that i can get in touch with Des Brady. He has a medal that was my great grandfathers and i would love to see a picture of it. Here is my original post. If someone Knows Des maybe they can forward this to him.

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.

Bonsoir,
Je suis enseignant en école primaire et pour honorer la mémoire de ceux qui sont morts pour notre Liberté je travaille avec mes élèves sur les pilotes tombés sur le périmètre de nos écoles Blargies Abancourt. A cette heure nous travaillons sur un P51 tombé à Moliens ? Blargies ? Abancourt ? Je travaille donc sur WALL. Si vous avez des informations supplémentaires sur ce pilote, nous serions très heureux si vous acceptiez de les transmettre. Je ne désespère pas de retrouver le point d'impact. Cordialement

I just discovered this site tonight, 12th jan 2016, as I was just sorting old photos on my desktop. My dad was Royal air force along north coast of Northern Ireland at one time, before going to Italy. One one particular photo he had of his friends, one was called, Alec Recina, and my dad had written canadian killed in plane. So tonight, I just for curiousity browsed the web and discovered Alec's headstone on one of these photos. If ANYONE wants a photo, just let me know please. God bless you all.

My uncle James Nesbitt was a pilot with 101 Squadron Royal Air Force. He and his crew are buried her after their Wellington 111 bomber was shot down.
My two sons and myself intend to visit his grave in March of this year (2016).
We will be the first members of the family to come here.
Thank you all so much for looking after these graves. Such memories mean a lot.

Is there any record of a photograph of John Francis Viscount, who died October 30, 1915, while on the hospital ship Valdivia to britain from Galipoli, age 20 years, enlisted in Dunville, Nfld., 1st Battalion, son of John and M.R. Viscount. I understand that the Newfoundland Regiment landed in Galipoli on September 30, 1915 - he would have died within the month, likely buried at sea, noted on the memorial at Beaumont Hamel. Thank you. It is a result of my brother, Robert Viscount, that John's name was added to the Book of Memories, page 126, on Parliament Hill and though he has a copy of the page, I would like to be able to show him a photograph, if one exists.. Thank you.
