On The Cadge

Recommended Posts

Morning,

 

Been working on Walsall RoH for near on (or even longer) than 30 years.

 

Below are the headstone images from F&F (and 1 Italy) lacking from my research. Hoping someone will have some of them tucked away on their hardrives somewhere.

 

I have exhausted online media such as Findagrave and Billiongraves.

 

Many thanks and regards,

 

Graeme

Pending your obtaining a photo of the actual headstone, here is a long view of the location.  The CWGC cemetery plan is not very clear but I think he will be located close to the yellow  flowering plants mid-picture at the bottom of the lawned area.

Morning,

 

Many thanks for the replies, and the time and trouble put in.

 

I am very sorry, I should have added that I have exhausted online media such as Findagrave and Billiongraves. I will add it to my original thread,

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

Off the top of my head I think can only help with the Italian graves.  I have been to some of the other cemeteries but don't think I have photographed any of these graves, other than possibly in wide-angle views.  I will check though.

 

These pictures were taken late on a hot sunny day in September 2015.

 

Good luck with the others.

 

Ian

No problem - enjoy searching and at the moment excellent distraction. Are you putting things together in a book eventually??

You need to 'bold' the Bedford House heading as it looks like its part of the Bailleul Road East listing

Graeme,

 

Unfortunately I do have a picture of this headstone, but it's too sad to post.  This is an image of where it should be, and as you can see it was broken.

168859754_PrivateGeorgeGallimore.jpg.7599b7243aa8b75c04377f887d4779e9.jpg

 

The remains of the headstone were in the compost area on the southern edge of the plot.  I'm sure it was quickly replaced.  It's in the Google Maps Street View but that pre-dates my visit by 4 years.

 

This cemetery is still on my list of places to (re)visit in Italy, but who knows when that will be?

Hello Graeme,

I hope you are in this difficult time. 

Please note that Liévin Station Cemetery does not exist any more.

Soldiers' graves have transferred to Loos British Cemetery in1922.

As I am a member of the association 'Loos, sur les traces de la grande Guerre', when C-19 confinement will be off, I will go to this cemetery.

Please tell me if I have found the good soldier (see below)

Private PRICE SIDNEY

 200828 - South Staffordshire Regiment

KIA 24 April 1917

Age 20

LOOS BRITISH CEMETERY - Grave XIX. F. 2.

I will visit others cemeteries during my trips in the area  where I, my family and my friends live. Please, update your list, not to go for nothing.

Best wishes from France

Pierre

PS Thank you for being lenient with my English. It dates back to my schooling and may be starting to be out of time.

Morning Pierre,

 

Many thanks for your kind offer, I really appreciate you contacting me. I have sent you an e-mail.

 

You are quite correct about Lieven, I copied an incorrect part of my research in my haste. I do not have his image

and have amended my original post.

 

Your English is very good, far better, I think, than my French, certainly.

 

Stay safe in these troubled times,

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

Graeme,

 

I've had a check and there are few more cemeteries on your list that I can help with.  Here are the first two:

 

Gonnehem British Cemetery - Private Arthur Pennell

1542603484_PrivateArthurPennell.jpg.486e77afbaca275cb06cb62b9b3112f4.jpg

 

Guards' Cemetery, Combles - Private Herbert Alfred Harris

He is actually in Grave 13 in Plot I, Row C and not Grave 3.

245203781_PrivateHerbertAlfredHarris.jpg.ec63b614fd468f8c5928013504e4675c.jpg

 

I think I may have 3 or 4 more, and these will follow at some point when I'm bored with working at home!

 

Regards,

 

Ian

Graeme,

 

Here's a couple more.

 

Serre Road Cemetery No 1 - Private Charles Hill

 

1867760849_PrivateCharlesHill.jpg.a87e6c1d9fbdcffd1cd285aafc47375d.jpg

 

 

Winnezeele Churchyard - Private Arthur Parkes

 

98554484_PrivateArthurParkes.jpg.4491e01e9161dbb56041a71ff03b7531.jpg

 

I do have images for Shrine Cemetery, Bucquoy, but it's not clear from your edit of your original post if Chaz has supplied one or both of the headstones!

 

The only other location I might have images for is Boulogne Eastern Cemetery.  If I do then it will only be for Plot III.  The 'if' is because my only visit there so far was interrupted by very sudden and very heavy rain!

 

Regards,

 

Ian

Graeme,

 

Final post!

Boulogne Eastern Cemetery - Private Harry Haywood and Serjeant Joseph Thomas Reynolds

1025810568_SerjeantJosephThomasReynolds.jpg.6efe16cf77eab68beea01a986cb284b0.jpg

 

The wooden cross was placed for Jospeh Reynolds, so someone still remembers.

 

 

Shrine Cemetery, Bucquoy - Private Samuel Webb and Serjeant Arthur Linnell

 

These are at a slight angle - if I had stood in front of the headstones I would have cast a shadow on them!

An unrelated extra is the headstone of one of the men in your signature.

 

Boscon British Cemetery - Private Walter Clarke

must have been a problem with Shrine, I took Webb as well but more of an angle than yours.

Morning,

 

Michelle- Many thanks to you and Valentin for your time and trouble.

 

Ian - Once more many thanks for your interest in this thread. Walter Clarke is my grandfather who is my avatar. I did visit his grave many years ago, good to see the image.

 

Chaz - Many thanks for your images, I think the angle on Webb was too acute to use - Sorry.

 

Thanks to all and regards,

 

Graeme
