Hi

I am wondering if anyone is able to help with a map to locate a few cemeteries around the Colincamps area.

in particular i am after a map showing where

Lonely British Cemetery No. 2, Colincamps,

Jean Bart British Cemetery, Sailly-au-Bois, (near Jean Bart Trench),

White City Cemetery, Auchonvillers,

Southern Avenue Cemetery, Mailly-Maillet,

Colincamps British Cemetery and

Colincamps Churchyard cemetery (church has been relocated to different spot so i understand) are.

they were all moved into Euston Rd Cemetery after the war.

Any help much appreciated

thanks roger

Hi Bill,

Could you tell me what the map is that you are using please? It looks fascinating.

Best wishes,

It is from the 'White Cross Touring Atlas of the Western Battlefields' by Alexander Gross, published in the early 20s I believe (by Geographia,the same people who still do the street maps of London, etc.). White Cross was an insurance company.

thats a great book and very hard to track down a copy.

my guess on Jean Bart cem was the wrong side of the road so that is a big help, thanks
