He did say some while ago that he was no longer maintaining these sites as the CWGC had finally brought their database into something approaching comparable searchability.

You should be able to get what you want from the Debt of Honour database, is there anything specific you were wanting?

Thank you .............. not an individual, but a statistic!

The total dead of 1st RWF recorded 29th October to 31st October 1914.

I cannot find a way to use a wild card or whatever for the "name" entry.

The above was a nice table when I posted it! It's from Geoffs site when I sorted into Battalion/Date some time ago

The table should be

Battalion

Number

Surname

Initials

Date

Hyperlink to the CWGC

edit: the number of the hyperlink has no meaning. It was generated by Geoffs site during my download sessions.

Hwyn thank you.

Charlie2 for my future reference I still cannot get CWGC to come up with other than zero names, 29 to 31 Oct 1914, royal welsh fusiliers ......................

Your list contains my relative Private Albert Filsell whose death ignighted my interest in the Great War and my research into 7th infantry Division at Ypres. His brother died on HMS Queen Mary

Bet you none of them are in that list of mine in post 7 Kevin!

edit: Have opened your word doc now. You did get RWF but put Welsh Regt in your post. Hence my attempt at teasing.

Kevin.

With that surname I have no doubts whatsoever. It's a rear name. From 18th century big big families rule the history. I have never bothered to link it all together. Long time since I did my tree, pre computers and genealogy sites. There are a couple of other Filsell deaths also in the Great War, but details not currently to hand.

Hi

I dont know if this is the right section to ask this question. Has the Geoffs Search Engine (W W 1) site finished or is there a problem with the site?

Regards Andy

It worked OK last week but I can't access it now. 404 error. Try again later?

I was in touch with Geoff, and it will be up and running again, though not sure when. There are still a number of things you can do on Geoff's Engine, that you cannot do on the CWGC search. It's a great pity that one man can create a search engine (beautifully simple) that a large organisation like the CWGC cannot, though, it is a vast improvement on the early version (granted technology has improved since then)
