My name is Donna Cox and my husband’s name is Howard Cox. We live in Campbellville, Ontario, Canada and we are writing to you in the hopes of helping us to find someone in charge of the Seraincourt Church. My husband’s Uncle, Gordon Kenneth Young, formerly from Stratford, Ontario, Canada, a RCAF Warrant Officer is buried in the Seraincourt Churchyard with his crew who were shot down in their Wellington Airplane in World War II. In fact, the whole crew of the plane, all eight crew members, are buried in this Churchyard.

We are planning to visit France for the first time on March 24 to 25 and are thinking of coming to visit his grave. Gordon Kenneth Young’s sister, Doris Marilyn (Young) Cox is still alive and will be 90 next week and we would love to be able to visit the Church and to bring her pictures back of her brother’s grave.

If you can either help me with this request or give me the email or telephone number of the person in charge of the Church so that I can arrange with him/her to be able to access the grave, I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much.

Donna Cox and Howard Cox
Nephew to Gordon Kenneth Young

Hi Darryl,

I saw on the site of inmemories.com, that you were looking for a photo of your Gt Uncle' gravestone -
In case you have not managed to find one, I have found a photo of your Gt. Uncle's Grave - if you would like me to send it to you, let me know or check it out on the site below:-


If you want to contact them, they are very helpful and would be able to send you a clearer photo so that you should be able to read what is written on the headstone.

Hi. My Great Uncle George Thomas Kirk is buried in Quievy. My Brother and I are researching him and have found out a bit about him. He was my Nan's eldest Brother and she never really spoke about him although when she died, we found his pictures, penny, letters from the home office etc. We went over to Quievy in October on the 100th anniversary of his death and are planning to visit again in 2019. I can send a picture of him. Thanks

Bonjour --
I know you concentrate on Commonwealth graves, but I have been trying to find all the burial locations of the Doughboys who dies from my little town of Roselle Park, N.J. I have just discovered that Dr. John Edward WIlliams, who dies of typhoid fever on Sept. 3, 1918, was buried in in "Grave 20, French Communal Cemetery, Chaumont-en-Bassigny, Haute-Marne, France, in the family vault of widow. Chaumont." This is according to his burial card. The burial card is stamped "Grave released to N.R. special case."

I'd like to obtain a copy of this family vault, and see if Dr. Williams' burial in the vault can be confirmed. I'd be happy yo cover any costs involved. I don't wantany of our WWI dead to be forgotten.

Thank you for any help or adviceyou can share.

Hi. I visited the grave of my Gt uncle Joseph with my son on Armistice day Nov 2018 at 11 am. I was hoping that the local church / commune at Templeux-le-Guerard may have organised some centennial commemoration. Sadly, the cemetery was deserted. However, I'm glad that Joseph's story has been handed down to the next generation and is in good hands.

In memory of BERT WALTER BAKER grave 05 in the Landrecies communal cemetery. My Great uncle aged just 19 killed a week before Armistice, shot in an entry way. Beloved older brother of Richard and one of 13 children from Dudley Worcestershire (as it was). My grandfather shed a tear every Armistice service, as a child this made an impact on me. He never was able to visit his brothers grave but in 2008 my brother visited and paid his respects by laying a wreath on Remembrance Day. Thank you Great uncle and all who made the ultimate sacrifice. Memory Eternal.
