Hi 

Does any one live near this Cemetery. I am researching a soldier buried there and would love to get a photo of his grave. Cannot see anything on his CWGC page to say that a photo is available.

I live in Australia so not just a small excursion and with covid I can't see myself getting there before 2023.

 

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Graeme very much for that. The CWGC had no mention of photos.

Appreciate the effort.

Hi

 

Always worth checking Findagrave and Billiongraves.

Hello,

 

Good that someone found this online. Because of the French lockdown, people have to stay within 10 km of their home... Take this into account when asking for pics at the moment.

Good morning,

 

with the 10 km restriction, I am unable to take pictures for "Find a Grave".
except in the Loos area.
