Im having the same trouble David. cant load photos and getting same messages. Will try phoning Keith later.
My Gt Gt Granfather is on the War Memorial at Witton and is also burried there, I do wonder tho as he died in February 1917 from injuries when he was bought back from WW1, but when i checked the Fiches for burials the only one i could find was buried there in the July 1917, it seems a long time between the two dates, does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be? I am hoping to try to find his grave, my nans cousin said he remembers his mother taking him to a grave there as a child and as he has no other family there we assume it must be Gt Gt Grandfather
Hi Winston, his name is William Martin, someone did find his war records and confirm it's him, and i've seen the picture on the Common Wealth War Graves site, I just don't understand the length of time .. do you think they got his death date wrong? he was bought home and was in hospital in Birmingham when he passed away, I assume it would have been at what is now B'ham Uni in Selly Oak. I haven't been able to find any war records for him so presume they were burnt, so i now tinking they have got his date of death wrong as there's only one William Martin buried there that year and nan has always insisted he is buried there and her cousin does seem to back that up.
