Hello Joe,

No, you're right, not one single Royal Highlander. There are some other Scots connections, but not many.

It's a work still in progress, the rain spoiled a few of the photos and I've still to find a couple of the graves. Some of the plot numbers provided by the CWGC site can't possibly be correct.

Chers,

Nigel

Nigel

have you tried your local Births/Deaths Register office,they might have a book on Plots and who is in them?

or a member of staff who used to look after the cemetery,the Register office may know.

Good Luck

Joe
