i was very plsd , to find a photo of my Grandfather ,[ which must have been taken just before he left the uk in 1915 ] ., to go to BELGIUM with his regiment . His name was ERNEST BALL ., and he was killed near to the village of PLOEGSTEERT . It was very emotional for me to see him as he looked with sad eyes , before he set off on this ONE WAY TRIP. I have been to the Memorial in Belgium and have signed the Visitors Book , it is a Peaceful place nowadays & so well kept by the Graves Commission , and it is a reminder to us all , of a LOST GENERATION . :-(

When I was very young our family would visit my grandparents on Long Island. There on a wall was a photograph of a young man in uniform. Haunting in a way. Later in my life I learned more about this person, he being my great uncle, who died so very close to home and so near to the end of that war.

Thank you for keeping the memory of these brave men and women alive. My great uncle Private Robert George age 22 of the Seaforth Highlanders died on the 11th April 1917 at Roeux, Arras, France, and is buried in Browns Copse. All 12 Officers, and nearly 400 men (92%) of his battalion were wiped out by machine gun fire. My Grandmother never got over the loss of her dear brother and sadly never got the chance to visit his grave. My partner and I made the journey on her behalf on armistice day 2013 placing our poppies on his grave. It was a very moving and emotional day. I have photographs of him and his grave (beautifully kept) and also of the Seaforth Memorial. All of this I will pass on to my son so that Robert George will never be forgotten.

Hello, my father was named in honour of his relative killed in action in WW1. John George BAYLIFF. While we have always been aware of this relative we have only recently come across your photos Pierre in the Vaire-Sous-Corbie cememtery. I am particularly interested in why he and 3 others are in a civilian cemetery. I am intrigued as to the story behind this and what part the locals played in their burial. As I am coming to France in November I am particularly interested in visiting this grave. Any information anyone can give our family would sincerely be appreciated. Thank you. Kind regards, Janet.

iIn memory of Patrick E.Welchman - because of him, I got to know my grandfather very well - Grandpa (Thomas H. Swann)(his Observer at the time) credited him for saving his life when they were shot down on a mission to bomb railway yards near Metz in 1918. I hope to visit his resting place very soon. Would love to find and make contact with any Welchman surviving family members??

I am the Great Grandaughter of Ralph Wheatley Coulson , Durham Light Infantry, buried at Bulls Road Cemetery. I knew very little of him as my Gran was only 5 when he was killed in 1917. I was given his medals many years ago but only appreciated the relevance of this when I started to look at my family tree. My family and I visited the grave about 3 years ago, it completed the search and another piece of the jigsaw. I would be grateful for any information available around the events of his death if indeed there are any. It has been a fascinating journey. We recently bought a London Tower Poppy in his memory.

I am the son of Vernon Beldon Parker (son of Aubrey J & Emma BELDON Parker; Emma Beldon was the sister of James BELDON, the first casualty listed on your site).

I was named after James Beldon and have two very special artifacts of his military life during WWI.

I know very little about J. Beldon but have learned much by searching the internet and would love to know more.....if anyone has any connecting stories about James Beldon.

Things I have learned: 1-He sent a military Christmas Card Dec 1910 to his mother and father (I have this 100 year old card in my possession). 2- He served as a rifleman in the Kings Royal Rifle Corp ( I have one document saying he was in the 4th Battalion and other says the 2nd Battalion) 3-He was born 1891 and died at age 28 after serving 4 - 8 years in the military.

Please share any information about his last battle, friends or other artifacts if willing. Thank you. Gratefully Yours James Beldon Parker
