PAGE 12. OUR ROLL OF HONOUR. THE GREAT WAR. 1914 - 1918


In Flanders Fields


This page is designed to commemorate the members of our extended family who fought and died during the first World War. It is our intention to create a memorial which will expand with the passing months of the centenary war years and the casualty list grows ever larger. The dedication will appear on the front page of the web site on the centennial anniversary of our ancestor's death and will then be added to this page. Each dedication carries a link to the Certificate page at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's web site.

(* A biography of Canadian physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae who wrote the poem after presiding over the funeral of his friend who was killed at the Second Battle of Ypres on May 3rd 1915 appears on the wikipedia page: "In Flanders Fields")
