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.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Hello Pierre

I contribute to a non-commercial website Yorkshire Regiment WW1 which is dedicated to remembering something of the men who died during WW1 whilst serving with the Yorkshire Regiment. You have published a photograph of Tours (La Salle) Communal Cemetery where Pte Bernard Walker of the Yorkshire Regiment is buried.

I am writing to enquire whether you will allow the photo to be reused on the Yorkshires site and email me a larger copy of it? Naturally, the owner of the image will be credited and a link provided to you site if you wish.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Pierre - This is my only way to reach you, mysteriously your server is suddenly rejecting my emails as spam. I want to thank you for the photos you sent of my grandfather's grave (Pvt. Marmaduke Frank Richards, Royal Welsh Fusiliers). I definitely plan to visit myself someday. Also, my dad would have been so moved to see these photos of his father's final resting place. Thanks for your tremendous work on this website. The stories and photos are very meaningful (I also saw the story about your family).
on 21/12/2015 at 20:38

Thank you for this site. My grandfather Alfred William Charles is buried here. Along with Amos Solomon,19, both were KIA with 295th Siege Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery, at Armagh Wood on the afternoon of 26/9/1917, known as the Battle of Polygon Wood. Alfred went out under fire, as a signaller, to repair some telephone wires when he was hit by a shell and killed instantly. He was 35, a postman from Hull in England. His battery had only landed at Le Havre at the end of March 1917, and were positioned NW of Armienteres before moving to the Ypres Salient.
Lest we forget.

On 06.12.2015 when visiting grave (1X.D.88) of our relative Alfred Hewitt who was killed exactly a century earlier on 06.12.1915 we had a spare remembrance cross.
On noticing the nearby grave (1X.D.52) of Private 35009 W J Hodges, Royal Field Artillery we left a cross in his honour and in his name since he was also killed on the same day as our relative. Should a relative of W J Hodges read this entry we would be pleased to send them a photograph of his grave.

Albert Phillip Lacombe was the son of Cleophas Lacombe and Margaret Ann Beaudry he was born 03 Apr 1878 in the Town of Peterborough, Ontario. From the Canadian Census of 1881 through to 1901 he grew up in the town of Bracebridge with other 11 siblings. Between 1901 and 1906 he made his way and settled in Souris, Manitoba. Between 1906 and 1907 he met, fell in love with Marie Ezilda Lefebvre. They were married on the 11th of February 1907 St. Augustine Church, Brandon, Manitoba. Witnesses were Elvina Lefebvre sister of Ezilda and Charles Shannon. On the 08 June 1912 a daughter Mary Frances was born at Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg. Albert Phillip Lacombe enlisted 21st November 1916 and was assigned to the 11th Battalion, Canadian Railway Troop. He passed away on the 12th of November 1918. The following letter was received by his widow Ezilda Lacombe from the attending nurse at No.1 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station:
Dear Mrs. Lacombe
I deeply regret that it is my sad duty to inform you of the death of your husband 1084280 L/Cpl Lacombe 11th CRT who was brought here on the 12th of November suffering from acute influenza and pneumonia and passed away on the evening of the 14th. During that time he was very ill and unable to talk much so that he left no messages as far as I can learn. I am sorry that I did not know his home address until after his death or I should have personal talk with him as my own home town is not far from Souris, but among so many patients it is only by chance that we meet those we know. Any personnel effects will be forwarded through the customary channels and should reach you in due time. The interment took place in the Auberchicourt cemetery some distance from Douai. With sincere sympathy for your bereavement in this hour of victory yours very truly,

In loving memory of Great-Uncle Frank Whitten. I only knew him through the words and memories of my Grandfather Maurice Whitten, his younger brother, who obviously looked up enormously to his elder brother and told me of cycling trips they had made to France and Germany before the war. I have inherited a silver tray dedicated to Frank in 1915 to commemorate his wedding. Alas it was short-lived. It took me a while to track down his resting-place. Thanks for keeping these memories alive for us all.
on 11/11/2015 at 14:19

My uncle George Easey is buried here. My husband and I visited the cemetery some years ago, planted some plants and took photographs for my aunt and father - the remaining siblings of George, who had never seen his grave. Both were in their nineties. We produced a small pamphlet about him including the photos which I believe are now in the museum in Laxfield Suffolk, where he was born. Thanks so much for this site. I never new it existed until I remembered him today.

My great, great uncle is buried here after being shot and killed by a sniper on Christmas Eve 1916.

His name was George Herbert Burgoyne and he was just 21 years old.

In the same year his older brother Walter died due to illness and a few short years later his younger sister committed suicide. It must have been almost unbearable for their parents and remaining siblings which included my great grandmother.
on 06/11/2015 at 20:49

My grandfather Pilot Officer Nelson Henry Webb is buried here. He was 217 Squadron Coastal Command and was shot down over Lanester whilst carrying out a bombing raid on the U boat bases at Lorient on December 20th 1940. My mother was 4 years old when he died. I have visited Lanester Cemetary and was struck by its peace and beauty, and how well the Commonwealth Graves are cared for.
