If there is a stone carved name of the cemetery outside the entrance as most CWGC cemeteries have, could I trouble you for a photo, please?

Bob, from memory, I believe more often than not if there are military graves within a Communal Cemetery they dont have the stone carved name at the entrance because the Cemetery was designed and used years before the Military plots were added. Dont quote me on that, but I shall ask Franck when he gets in touch again.

Yes, that's my experience, too, but there are exceptions, so I'd be most grateful if Franck has a look,

kind regards,

Bob

A public thank you to Franck again for excellent photos in trying circumstances i.e. torrential rain and black clouds. As you suggested Tony there was no cemetery name outside,

kind regards,

Bob

Hi, Can you still get photographs from Ste Marie Cemetery. If so would it be possible to get a photograph of Sidney Taylor, Royal Garrison Artillery, S/no 106483 Grave Ref Div 62. 1.1.4. It would be very much appreciated if you could Regards Palestine

Theres no request been made for his photo on his page. You only have to look at how many requests for the Cemetery there are to see that its not a Cemetery that gets photographed very often.

Your right there is no photo of this casualties grave or memorial on that website, although if and when I get one I'll be adding to it. Great Site though, and never even knew it existed.
