22713 Charles G Reader

Hello

When I try to find a record of any memorial to Private 22713 Charles G Reader who died 26 May 1916 while serving with 2nd Batt KOYLI  they don't exist.

I can find His grave in Authville  cemetery France, but cant find him listed on any local Remembrance memorials where he was born or lived and he is not recorded in National Roll of the Great War and I cant find him at the KOYLI museum website.  I have tried Gateshead and Newcastle councils without any success.

Are all WW1 deaths remembered on a memorial ? can you suggest anywhere else I could try.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

I've moved this post to a more appropriate section (otherwise it would get deleted after 30 days).

People had to be added to memorials, they weren't an automatic thing. Local communities, organisations etc would decide whether they wanted a memorial and who would be listed on it.

 

The National Roll is far from complete - I believe a person had to submit a man for remembrance in it.

Was he from Elswick ? - http://www.newmp.org.uk/detail.php?contentId=11722

As his pension record (see other thread ) shows Elswick I think that must be him in the link I posted above.
