I cannot add much more to your information other than John was born Crumlin Co. Dublin. The date of his death would suggest he received his wounds during Second Battles of Ypre.

Does SDGW throw up anything on the following :

EMMERSON A W Sergeant

_______________________________________

EMMERSON J H 2nd Lieutenant

_______________________________________

EMMERSON M Lieutenant

_______________________________________

EMMERSON R H Sergeant

I can find nothing on them on CWGC. The men are listed on The Barnard Castle Roll of Honour but so far they have eluded me. I believe SDGW does not list ranks above sergeant (?) but wondered ifyou could throw any light on the two Sergeants. All men are Barnard castle born I think - possibly from the same family. Many thanks

There are no entries for your men (Officers or Other Ranks) in either SDGW or in ODGW.

Hi,

I am new at using this forum so I apologise in advance if I'm doing anything wrong.

I am researching my family history and I have a lot of males who 'disappear' around the time of the Great war. I was wondering if somebody could give me any information on soldiers with the surname BEEBEE who were killed / injured during WW1?

I know that my G,Great Uncle was Joseph Harold Beebee and was killed in 1914 - He was with 2 Bat Gren Guards - any more info on him would be greatly appreciated!

Also, my Grandad ( Joseph's brother) was Ezekiel Beebee and served with 2 Bat South Staffs - he was injured and survived but if there is anyone with any additional info on his unit then again, greatly appreciated!

Finally, any Beebee info would be really helpful!

Many Thanks, Sam

That's great, much appreciated Doug. The first chap you found for me was my Great Uncle - he was in the 2nd Bn. Grenadiers. He was born in Walsall (I think Rushall is very close to Walsall). I have a lot of information on him but not much of it being military. How did you find out that he enlisted in Walsall? I always thought that, at the time, the Grenadiers had a 'catchment area'?

Do any of you folks now a good resource for finding old photographs? In particular 2nd Gren. Guards or 2nd S. Staffs around 1914-1918?

Secondly, is there a way of either a) Requesting replacement medals of a deceased relative from the MoD (for a direct decendant) , or B.) Tracking down medals that were either i. Lost ii. Stolen iii. Sold on or simply 'floating' between dealer to collector?

Thanks for your help, Sam

Hi Doug,

My first post as a newbie.

I am researching my grandmothers brother, Private 1150 James S Bennett 16th(Service)Battalion(St Pancras) Rifle Brigade.

From the CWGC site I have learned that he died on 7th August 1916 and is buried in Gorre British & Indian Cemetery. The site does not give any information as to whether he was killed in action or died of his wounds.

Is this something that you could clarify for me?

Further I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction to learn where James saw action.

Regards

Keith

Hi Keith

SDGW does not tell you much more than you know already. He was killed in action.

You may be better off with his unit diary from the National Archives

It costs £8.50 to download and they supply 10 pages. You can ask for specific dates ie From August 1916. Soldiers are rarely mentioned by name but it may give you a better idea of what was going on.
