Good Morning

Can anyone kindly show me a map of Marchelpot for March 1918 with grid ref 62C. T22. D8.8 as this is where the Cemetery was and if anyone can impose that onto a modern map i'd be even more grateful! (Yes i'm being cheeky i know).

Recently found out my 1st Cousin 3 times removed was buried there but in subsequent German action his grave was lost and he's now commemorted on Memorial Grave in Roye New British Cemetery

 

Many Thanks

Wayne

On this link, you can enter the trench amp reference and it'll bring up the modern map

Once you've found it there (and that's probably enough for your actual needs), suggest you pop over to the National Library of Scotland site. That enables you to find the trench map and merge between it and a modern map. http://maps.nls.uk/ww1/trenches/index.html

This will plot your location until you get hold of the correct maps.

Wayne,

 

A direct link to your location on the NLS site here.

Use the slider in the box on the left hand side to change the transparency to show the modern map.

You can also change to show a Jan 1917 map, which has a bit more detail.
