Hello,

I wonder if anyone has photos from either of these cemeteries? Or if anyone would be willing to take a photo if they are intending to visit?

I recently had the cwgc records for these two brothers amended. My husband’s uncle would very much appreciate a photo of their headstones, since he has none of the men themselves.

who died age 27 on 09 May 1915

Son of James Draper and Frances Elizabeth Gwynne, of Ballymoney, Rostrevor, Co. Down. His brother William Gwynne also fell.

Forum Member Burlington has photographed all the Boulogne graves, if you PM him I am sure he will oblige.

The are many pals who visit or reside in the Ieper area so I think you will be successful.

Hello Diane

I visited Ypres Town Cem at the weekend and took a photo of the Gwynne grave just in case.

If you still need a photo, pm me your email address and I'll send you a copy.

Cheers

Mick

Thanks to burlington and bogarcher who helped me get the photos to my husband's uncle.

He is very touched by the kindness shown.
