Could a kind pal living adjacent to this cemetery possibly get me a digital photo of this Larne, County Antrim soldier's grave?

669845 Private David Barry of the 5th Canadian Mounted Rifles (Quebec Regt.) died of septic poisoning on 21 September 1916 at the Third General Hospital, Sheffield. He is buried in grave F9. "C." 5 in Sheffield (Burngreave) Cemetery.

Thanks in anticipation.

Thanks Liam

I'll get back to you on the LGS material ASAP.

I posted some material on C B Kydd and some of the pals replied. You should have a look. I took most of mine, and the photo of Kydd, came from Robert Thompson's new book; he seems to have had access to the records of CAI in Coleraine. They have a very good Memorial Roll apparently.

Regards

Carninyj
