Remembered Today:

Sims Reeve-Camdridgeshire Regiment


Recommended Posts

Is there anybody who has pictures and details of the Railway Dugouts Cemetary?

My Great Great uncle Sims Reeve is buried there, perhaps someone might even have a picture of his grave stone( long shot i know!! ). Hoping to visit the area later on in the year, so anything that might help.

I have grave/Memorial reference no:- VII. K. 1.

The Forum pals tour in April visited this cemetery. My pic shown here is actually looking away from Plot VII 9 (where I am standing), which is on the left hand side as you enter the cemetery. No doubt someone will have a photo or two.

Thanks for the photo. I dont know what to expect when i visit but i think keeping your emotions in check would be very very hard.

What did people do before digi cameras??!!

Hello Chris,

I have pictures of the headstone and cemetery for you.

Please send me your home mail.

You'll find mine on my web site

We had to use film and hope & pray the camera got the shot you wanted. Much easier now though.

Pierre i have received the photo of Sims` headstone, thankyou very much.

I think it is the first time anyone in my family has ever seen it since he was buried there in 1917.

Thanks for all your help!
