Remember me - echoes from the lost generations
Debt of honour register
 
 

You will find that some men and women are buried in the town or village where they lived, but still with a War Grave. Many people died whilst training, or from illness or wounds, in their country of birth. The young man below died of meningitis aged 21 while training (although that information came from researching his village Roll of Honour).
