He is buried in the same grave as Second Lieutenant Montague Bernard Browne 2nd/8th Battalion Sherwood Foresters (Nott’s and Derby Regiment). They were both killed in the battle of Mount Street Bridge.

This is a picture of his headstone, Browne’s inscription in on the front of the cross pedestal and Blissett’s is on the right side of the pedestal. According to the inscription he was 23 years old when he died. The link below is for a description of the Battle of Mount Street Bridge.

Hi, I have just joined the forum and I'm afraid I don't know how to send a PM yet... I am attempting to carry out some research on Private John Samuel Blissitt and I would be interested in viewing the service records which Simon_Fielding may still hold? Simon if your till willing to help, then I would be happy to hear from you.

Kind regards, jmoran
