Appeal for Relative - Corporal Robert Owen Davies

An appeal for relatives is a search to locate the next of kin for soldiers who fell in war. Could you be connected to this Soldier?

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and The Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre wish to contact the next of kin of Corporal Robert Owen Davies of 10th Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers.

Robert Owen Davies was born in Manchester and was married to Margaret Elizabeth. He was killed in action on 20 July 1916 in Delville Wood.

Robert is commemorated on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Thiepval Memorial. However, new research has shown that he is in fact buried in London Cemetery and Extension. A rededication service will take place at his graveside in June 2019.

If you are related to Corporal Davies, please contact our Commemorations Team.
