main site grave photos,
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:23:24 PM »
hi everyone, I have taken on the task of looking after the grave photos , that  tisgrannie  started back in 2007,  we the moderator's and the administration  team feel its time to carry on the great work tis ,started, and  we hope to see finished , that is a grave photo of every Manchester who  died and was listed and buried in a cwgc or a family plot at home, so I will be starting by trying to sort out all photos that are not grave photos, don't be offended if  I remove some they will be put in a  odd ball set , so start sending them in again, with any other information you have, but please look to see if they are not already listed.

Tony,

No sorry, I was looking for one.

7202 James Broady, 16th Bn. Manchester Regt, died at home on 22.7.1916 probably from wounds received in France on the 1st.

hiya simon.
james was buried in a private grave on 25th july 1916,its not marked with a CWGC headstone,its a private headstone,the memorial inscription says,DUTY NOBLY DONE
hes listed on st.clements church day school memorial and also on st.clements church memorial,he and his brother george are named on the poplar grove roll of honour,if you google trafford war dead,there are photos of all three memorials.

A big thank you to RaptorBob who as just sent me sets for,

Bazentin Le Petit
Bernafay
Caterpillar Valley
Danzig Alley
Delville Wood
Flatiron Copse
High Wood - London Cemetary
Longueval Road
Martinpuich
Thistle Dump
Tyne Cot     not the full set,

 Robert was with his parents Les and Margaret,  who while visiting  Lochnagar Crater ,LES fell over not into the crater thank god but on the outside and was unlucky enough to break his arm in 3 places, after a couple of days in ARRAS HOSPITAL,  Les was fit enough to leave,
The English couple who run Silent Picket B&B  drove them around and translated at the hospital.
so on behalf of myself and all the members, I wish him a speedy a full recovery, tonyrod
