A link to three more casualties whose final resting place was listed as ‘Unknown’ for decades and who are now listed within the pages of this Forum.

Stanley Barke, at: Manchester Southern Cemetery, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Lancashire

Henry Brierley, at: St John Church, Abram, Lancashire

Fred Baron, at: Old West Cemetery, Darwen, Lancashire

 

The Memorial Wall in the Old West Cemetery at Darwen is a stunning and sobering sight.

 

Together with the three casualties we visited on the Isle of Man, may they all rest in peace.

Finally, the link to the final four casualties whose final resting place was listed as ‘Unknown’ for decades and who are listed within the pages of this Forum.

https://www.canadianukgravesww1.co.uk/blog/

 

Norman David Roberts, at: Fron Cemetery, Llangollen, Denbighshire

Thomas Owen Davies, at: St Cadfarch Church, Penegoes, Montgomeryshire

Frederick Charles Dakers, at: Penarth Cemetery, Penarth, Glamorganshire

James Robert Pullen, at: London Road Cemetery, Reading, Berkshire

 

It is a remarkable achievement that the CWGC have installed the markers for Roberts and Dakers less than 12 months after their final resting place was established.

 

As noted in our Blog, the final resting place for Pullen was established in December 2011, but unavoidable administrative problems delayed the installation of his headstone until 1st November 2018.

 

May they rest in peace.

As Chairman of Friends of Darwen Cemetery I would like to thank you for your comments on the Memorial Wall. We published a book that contains the biographies of the 79 casualties buried in the cemetery. This include 9 not yet recognised by the CWGC. Details of how to obtain copies of the book can be found on www.darwencemetery.org.uk

Although not reported on the Graves Registration Report Form, there is a reference to the Canadian believed to be buried in that cemetery with a date of death of 12 May 1921. THe note is in the far right column under the record for "Hebert".

With regard to Samuel McNeice my Ulster contact has carried out a very thorough search to no avail.

 

Cheers
