Last night I looked through a box that my mother left me, with private historical documents and details of my great uncle, Private George McGuire, who died in WW1. I realised I knew nothing about the manner of his death or where he was buried. Within a couple of hours, thanks to your site, I have found his grave.
Thank you very much, this means a lot.
I would also like to visit the grave someday.

Dear Pierre, I cannot thank you enough for your wonderfull website. Using it I was able to find the grave of my Grandfather James Hegarty whom I had never known. He is burried in Duhallow A.D.S. Cemetary IV.F.19. Thank you for helping fill in this unknown in our family history.

Dear Pierre, I cannot thank you enough for the care, time and effort you have put into this website. I have found my uncles grave from the information you have provided and seen the section where he is buried in Nord. I live in Australia and will probably never get the chance to see it in person nor my mother who was 6 years old when he died. It is good for us to know that someone other than us care about these men and women who died for their country so far away from home and hearth.

Thank you and Merci from Aussies everywhere for the work done and you are continuing to do.

My father-in-law's brother was killed and for years the family did not know where he was buried. or even knew that he existed..through some research I remember seeing that he was listed as having died in Belgium. I want to thank you for listing all fallen heros, as I was able to find him - his name was Pte. James William Goodchild, of the British Middx Regiment.

Thank you for listing my Great Uncle, I can only hope to one day visit the cemetery with my family. We are now in the US, but the internet makes the world just a little smaller.

On a visit to France with my father in October 1999, we visited a Military Cemetery at Beugny just north of Bapaume and in the cemetery called Red Cross Corner we found the headstones of 2 soldiers (nearest the camera) of the Worcestershire Regiment (Lance Cpl L. Lawrence & Pvt. F. Neale) both of the same Battalion as Thomas who died on the same day as Thomas. Also at the far end of the same row are 7 headstones to Unknown Soldiers. Is one of these Thomas?

Whilst tracing my family tree I discovered my great great grandfather Frederick James Hopper (who was from Darlington, Co-Durham, England) died during the First World War in June 1917 whilst trying to save someone else's life. Thank you for keeping his memory alive along with all those others who also sacrificed their lives.

Many thanks for your dedication in setting up and maintaining this site. I have just recently discovered that I my Great Grandmother lost her nephew, who was with the N.Z.E.F., in the Great War. Reading their correspondence makes me feel very sad and it is comforting to know that through your website he is remembered and honoured.

Yours sincerely,

Thank you Pierre for all your work preparing this website. I have an old picture of my great-uncle James Kydd who died in WW1. Now I have have a picture of his gravesite at Tilloy-les-Cambrai. I will be able to pass on my information to my grandchildren. I wish I had found this information while my grandmother (his sister) was still alive. I hope to visit the cemetery someday soon.

I often thought of my uncle John over the years dying at Dunkirk. My mother would tell me that her brother, John Mather Carnochan was reported to have "stepped on a landmine" at Dunkirk. Thank you for providing me with this poignant family and historical gem.

Thank you so much for your work. The picture that you posted on the Aulnoy Cemeterie site is the one me, my wife and daughter left there when I visited my grandfather's grave . We are the only members of William Condron's family to visit his grave . It means so much to us that you are taking your time to do such a noble thing.
may God bless you,

As we have thanked you personally for your kindness when Therese and I were in Belgium, I thought it about time I also acknowledged the great work that you are doing with this site. Through your help and other like you who have this great interest in both wars, I was a able to acquire pictures of the graves of all the men from our small community that make up our cenotaph. In particular I thank you for posting two headstones on your site. Although our time was short, the visit to Essex Farm , St George's Church , Tyne Cot Cemetery and a visit with Steve Douglas will long be remembered. The fact that there is so much more to see leaves the door open for hopefully another trip.
Kindess Regards Therese & Don Pottie
