Raising a glass to the memory of Fred & Thomas. Fallen but not forgotten. Raising another to the efforts of Neil & Steve

All IFCP cases can be seen as a permanent list on the IFCP website

The list will become far too big to appear as a pinned list here.

As a point of interest regarding Thomas Cooper, what happens to the entry under his other name Alfred Ashcroft (see below).

It was only when looking through ancestry that i came across the image below and wondered if i had found a non commerorated soldier that i had a look and found that he is recorded under both his names. Just wondered what the procedure was when a soldier was found and had previously been recorded with an alias.

Well spotted, Chris.

This is just one of the problems to be faced. Alias names are often known but sometimes they just slip the net.

We have dozens of such aliases waiting to be added.
