Andy,

I'd be grateful if you could take photos of the graves of these two lads:

Pte Robert Dennis, Mem 22 (his grave was original across the road, and not sure how the memorial appears in the cemetery)

Pte John Harry Payne, Plot III, Row c, Grave 29

Thanks Jim

Andy,

A bit unusual this one!

I picked up this picture the other day and would like if possible a modern-day picture of the same graves.

The front grave is Pte F W Dicken, 8th South Staffs who is in grave lll. E. 18

The graves behind him are (from left) 1. ?, 2. T.S. Holmes. 3. T Cartwright, 4. Horton / Heaton?, 5. ?, 6. Hall?, 7. Owen?' 8. Farr?, 9. ?

I realise that it's a big ask so don't worry if you can't do it but if you can I'll buy you a pint at the October meeting of the South Staffs Pals. :D

All photos EMailed except for yours Roy. These are a touch more complicated as I will explain, and I seem to have lost your EMail address which isn't a great help.
