Visiting WW1 cemeteries this year?

Postby museumtom on Sat Feb 06, 2010 1:08 pm

For those of you who intend to visit the ww1 cemeteries this summer, if you let me know which graveyard you intend to call to I am happy to give you the names and grave locations of the men from Waterford, Wicklow, Wexford, Offaly, Clare, Carlow, Wexford, Tipperary, Kerry and Laoise in any given cemetery anywhere in the world before you go.
Regards.
Tom.

Arent they all listed on the CWGC site?

The peace tower outside Ieper is well worth a visit to

That would be too easy, only one in three of the next of kin filled in the 'letter if final verification' so that the CWGC would not have their details. For example pick any cemetery and tell me how many men from the above counties are in it and we will compare notes. Then you can see. I have a deal with Lijssenthoek Cemetery, I give them the info on the Irishmen I have and they send me photographs of their headstones, everyones a winner.
Regards.

Of course you are right..

When we get back to Ireland from Oz our first trips will be going round all the Australian War dead in Ireland to lay a poppy at the grave..Might take a while but it will be worth it
and if all goes to plan we should be be Villers Brett this Anzac Day
