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.

Hello, I have a photo of my great uncle, Alexander Lynch, flight sergeant 83 Sqdn RAF whose plane was shot down and crashed near Sogny-en-l'Angle on 11 March 1943. I have tried to send it to you by e-mail throught your link on the website, but could not connect. Alex and William Kenneth (Chipchase) are buried in the Church yard in Sogny. If you want, you can send me a mail and I will send you the photo of him and his crew standing next to their aircraft. My e-mail is maison_france( at sign)hotmail.com. Thank you

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??

We are planning to visit the CHAMPIGNOL-LEZ-MONDEVILLE CHURCHYARD to visit my uncle Mervin's grave. Does anyone have any information regarding Mervin Hopkins' death or military honours? Thank you very much for anything anyone can remember or provide.

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

Remembering at this time my Uncle, Private A.R.G. Smith, at rest in Roisin Cemetery. He passed to higher service on 6th November, 1918, so close to being able to come home and taking his place again in our family in Plymouth. I visited his resting place about 20 years ago but feel that in this special anniversary year it is a fitting time to say again Thank you Uncle Alfie for your sacrifice.

In this special commemoration period I want to honor the memory of all the fighters, all nations combined, this wretched slaves oh unnecessary killing and initiated by our dear leaders, elected ostensibly for the good of the people and do not hesitate not to sacrifice millions of innocent people to try to establish their supremacy. All of you who sacrificed your life in these muddy and unclean areas, you who believe in the legitimacy of your sacrifice for your homeland, you who have experienced the horror, misery, hunger, cold, fear, get here all the honors due to you, our eternal gratitude. Your memory must be forever in our hearts, as for those who have lost their lives and for those who are income. You are now all together in death, but you will remain forever our hero.
le 12/11/2014 à 18:43

En cette période exceptionnelle de commémoration je tiens à honorer la mémoire de tous les combattants, toutes nations confondues, esclaves de cette misérable tuerie ô combien inutile et initiée par nos chers dirigeants, élus soi-disant pour le bien des peuples et qui n'hésitent pas à sacrifier des millions d'innocents pour essayer d'asseoir leur suprémacie. Vous tous qui avez sacrifié votre vie dans ces espaces boueux et immondes, vous qui avez cru en la légitimité de votre sacrifice pour votre Patrie, vous qui avez connu l'horreur, la misère, la faim, le froid, la peur, recevez ici tous les honneurs qui vous sont dus, notre gratitude éternelle. Votre mémoire doit être à jamais dans nos coeurs, tant pour ceux qui y ont laissé la vie que pour ceux qui en sont revenu. Vous êtes désormais tous réunis dans la mort mais vous resterez pour toujours nos héros.

In memory of British solider: (my great Uncle)
Frederick George Riddles.

He was part of the RASC. During the slaughter of soldiers on the beach his vehicle was converted into a ambulance and he rescued soldiers injured on the beach. He returned to rescue more men when his truck was hit and he was killed.


Rank: Driver Service No: T/128529
Date of Death: 11/06/1940 Age: 33
Regiment/Service: Royal Army Service Corps
Grave Reference: Spec. Memorial. C, 45.
Additional Information:

Son of Alfred and Ada Riddles; husband of Margaret May Riddles, of Bournemouth, Hampshire.

Fred Riddles wife (My great Auntie Peg (Margaret)) raised their two children in England: (Jean & Alexander) without their father. Alex later immigrated to Canada and then to the USA. Jean remained in England but her two children Linda and Edwin both became soldiers (USA).

Auntie Peg visited Canada many times to see her sister who immigrated from England with her husband after the war. (my grandmother) Isabelle (Belle), husband Art Shave.
Auntie Peg also visited her son/grandchildren/family in the USA and my grandmother in the winter months in Kissimmee, Florida. It was a hard life at that time raising their two children without a father but she always had a smile and a nice thing to say.

Frederick George Riddles: Always remembered

I have spent several years trying to find my Great Uncle, Private Fred Wilson, 203515 of the 1st battalion East Yorkshire Regiment last resting place. He died a POW but my grand parents never knew anymore than that. I never gave up and today of all days, 100 years since WW1 started, I found him, laid to rest in Hautmont Cemetary....if it is at all possible It would be lovely to receive a photograph. His grave number is IV.B.21... Both my great uncles died in the war, now I have found them both I hope to be the first family member to visit them and pay our deepest respects on behalf of all my family....
