Likely Burial Place of a 1/7/16 Grimsby Chum

Recommended Posts

Can any pal with knowledge of the GCs suggest where an unknown Grimsby Chum may have been buried - I appreciate that it is impossible to give a definitive answer to this sort of query but any thoughts would be appreciated. The 2 above both have known GC graves from 1/7/16. Are there other candidates?

Are there "Unknown Soldiers of the Lincolnshire Regiment" in either cemetery.

Thanks Ian

Fantastic. Thanks Chris

A great preponderance of unknowns which is a little surprising. I suppose the bodies were out long enough to make their condition poor when eventually recovered.

Hi

There is 1 unknown Lincoln in Lonsdale alongside named Lincolns of 2nd Battalion who died 01/07/1916.

There is 1 Unknown Lincoln in Grandcourt Road but the 2 named nearby died in Dec 16 and Jan 17.

There are no unknown Lincolns in Stump Road, Mill Road or Connaught.

Thanks Peter.

I am taking a relative of John William Camplin over to La Boiselle in the Spring. This soldier is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial but we will look in on his named Chums at Ovillers and Gordon Dump. One at Gordon Dump is from Sleaford the home town of John William. This is the first family visit to where this man lost his life and I am much looking forward to the visit.
