liverbird Posted 7 November , 2013 Share Posted 7 November , 2013 Hi don't know if anyone can help with this for me as I am getting confused with maps. My husbands grandfather served with the Loyals and is buried in St Mary's Dressing Station at Haisnes, his headstone shows him to have died on 25th September 1915, which we all know is the date for the Battle of Loos. I had always been under the impression that somehow he had been taken there injured in battle but have now learned that he was actually buried where he lay and was removed to the cemetery by September 1919 and was identified which allowed him a headstone. What I have been given is a map ref for the original site of his 1st burial as follows G17.B.8.6.5 it has to be somewhere in the area of the battle, if there is anyone out there who can help with this ref I would be very grateful. this would tie up the last of years of research on the family.
