This is great. I’ve found the grave of my grandad’s brother. As a member of the Manchester police, he didn’t need to go to war but chose to. He was a dispatch rider with the Royal Army Ordnance Corps and was killed in North Africa aged 25 on 10 April 1943. None of the family were ever able to visit his grave, and I think with the death of my grandad he passed from living memory. I think my family will appreciate this, as he meant a lot to my grandad.

The aim of The War Graves Photographic Project is to photograph every war grave, individual memorial, MoD grave, and family memorial of serving military personnel from WWI to the present day and make these available within a searchable database.
