Lonsdale Roll of Honour.
Lonsdale War Grave Project.
This project is to try and obtain war grave pictures of the grave or memorial of all the Lonsdale war dead. I intend to obtain as many pictures as I can manage, of the men of the Lonsdales. The idea is to get a picture of the grave or commemoration on a memorial, which will be available free to those who request it. Also available will be a photo of the cemetery and in some cases the soldier in question. I hope to update this page as part of my Lonsdale War Grave Project . The link on the soldiers name is to his war grave picture , the cemetery links to a view of this and any other photo's are labelled accordingly. I would like to make a request to all readers of this site to help in the Lonsdale War Grave Project. The Lonsdales are buried in France ,Belgium Germany and the UK in the cemeteries listed here:- Cemetery List . If any readers would like to help please contact me and I have lists of burials by cemetery, with directions and cemetery plans showing the approximate location of graves. If you are going to the Western Front and can take a couple of snaps, or live near one of the UK Cemeteries, please help this project. All I ask is a couple of pictures, and a cemetery view( I realise some cemeteries have long lists and people can't spend too much time taking photos). If you have a relative listed who you may have a photo of, then that would also be very welcome - maybe we can get a grave photo if you have not yet got one. This project could take years, I realise and I intend to try, even if I fail, I hope to get part way to a comprehensive set of pictures. You can help, so please think about it and contact me via email, if you are willing to assist. Finally, if I have missed out any Lonsdales from my list, or you find a link that is broken in the listings, please let me know and I'll put that right as soon as possible.
I would like to place on record a special thanks to David and Pat Shackleton.
During the summer, from their holiday home in the region, they have visited many of the cemeteries featured on the project and taken a superb set of pictures for the project. Many thanks to you both and I hope my project does your hard work justice.
* Note-These pictures are now online on the project.*
