Remembered Today:

Accepted Commemorations


Recommended Posts

Having Recently purchased a 1931 CWGC register for Shropshire, i've noticed the following man is not listed:

Henry Alfred Cakebread, Labour Corps, died 19/02/1919, buried Oakengates (Holy Trinity). He is commemorated by the CWGC, however his name is not listed in the register.

Does this mean in 1931, Henry Alfred Cakebread was uncommemorated? or was this a simple clerical error?

Terry Denham provides the forum with recently accepted commemorations, but what about those accepted after the cut off date for both wars?

Curiosity is getting the better of me, when was Henry commemorated?

Several men were missed in the first editions of the UK CWGC registers either through error or usually because they were not known. They were added by the time the second editions (if any) were published in the 1970s/80s.

Finding non-coms is not new - especially amongst the post-discharge group.
