Burial Returns


Recommended Posts

I have from the CWGC a burial return for a soldier buried in Delville Wood.

He was found at 57C S3 c8.8, am I right in thinking that would be sheet 57c on a trench map and square 3, so what does c.8.8.

I think that is west of High Wood.


Can any please confirm that is correct for me.

High Wood or Delville Wood?


Each number square divided into 4, a b c d 


Your ref refers to square c, co-ordinates 8,8.


As shown here on this quick and dirty sketch.
