Sincere thanks to Terry for all his hard work.

Very moving to see Joseph William Bowmer has been accepted.

He is buried in Stapleford Cemetery where Thomas Tunaley accepted 26.07.16 is awaiting CWGC Headstone.

Hi Terry aware the CWGC are very busy and will have been held up by Covid19,but once a case has been reported and all information sent in,is there a rough time scale when name might be added to the Roll if accepted.

Seems to be around two years or longer at the moment. I know I'm still waiting on a couple that were submitted in September 2018. Might be less for RAF and Navy cases.

 

(EDIT: Those two cases were accepted a few weeks after I posted this comment, so about 19 months.)

The time is roughly two years. Our cases above were submitted April/May 2018.

 

This has been the normal time scale though efforts are being made to speed up this process. That is for UK Army cases. RN, RAF, MN, Dominion cases can be much quicker (but not guaranteed). Submissions are processed in order of receipt and we have over 1100 cases in the system for them to work through. There will be others as well.

 

One of the SA cases above was submitted in March 2008 so two years is not so bad after all! SA cases are a different story.
