    War Graves and the fallen who are commemorated on family headstones but buried elsewhere
    War Memorials
    Stained glass windows and churches

Posted 06 October 2010 - 08:08 AM

This memorial will consist of names of the fallen (NOT WAR GRAVES) that I have found commemorated on Private Family Memorials. or during research that I have been involved in.
I feel that so many fallen do not get mentioned on their local War Memorials, or even with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission ( if they passed on between 4th August 1914 - 31st August 1921), and are missed by others who walk about taking photographs of War Graves (as I do) This is my attempt to bring them to notice and not to Forget Them,

The location will be given, and a photo of the memorial can be viewed at http://www.militaryi...ry.php/cat/1097

It is open to any person who would like to add data from NON WAR GRAVES only exception, if on the war grave (mostly at the foot) there is a commemoration to another fallen but not buried in the same burial ground

Whenever I photograph a cemetery I seek out private memorials too, be they the actual graves of the fallen marked by a non-standard memorial or simply a name on a family grave for a son or daughter buried elsewhere.

This fine exapmle from Bangor Cemetery in Co. Down Northern Ireland, is both a non-standard war grave, and a memorial for a serviceman buried elsewhere as it commemorates the Mahaffy brothers. One was killed in the Great War and is buried here, the other was killed in the Second World War and is buried in Germany.

This from the 'World War One Memorial Book' published by North Down Museum & North Down Borough Council, compiled by Katrina Clydesdale. The Forum's own Alan Curragh is mentioned first among those who assisted Miss Clydesdale in her work.

'Second Lieutenant Henry Irwin Mahaffy was the eldest son of William and Jeanie Mahafy of , "Augustaville", Bangor.
Henry was educated at the local Bangor Endowed School and before joining the army he was studying law with his fathers firm H&W Mahaffy Solicitors on Callendar Street, Belfast. Like many young men he was a keen rugby player and was a member Bangor Rugby Club.
He enlisted early in the war as a Private in the Ulster Division and after lengthy service at the front he returned home to qualify for a commission in the Royal Flying Corps, which he received in May 1917.
Henry then was sent to Salisbury Plain where he would be fully trained in aerial combat before being sent to the front. Salisbury Plain was and still is today the biggest military training ground in the United Kingdom, and during the First World War the first flying school was formed there.
Tragically, just five months later, during his training before he saw any active fighting Henry was killed in a flying exercise. He was unfortunately one of many young men who were killed during their training in flying acidents, by the end of the war some 8000 men had lost their lives in this way.
In the opening years of the war the number of fatalities in such circumstances was incredibly high, therefore, new measures had been put in place in 1917 in an attempt to improve the safety of air force training and reduce the number of casualties, these measures did improve the safety and fewer men were losing their lives. However, accidents continued to happen at Royal Flying Corps taining grounds and on October 27th Henry was killed. He was just 23 years old."

Hello Nigel

While the Great War Forum functions as a "discussion forum" to members in the present, it really is a growing data base. Listing the NAMES with details, would enable researchers and future relations to perhaps search the name and learn some additional information. Also, in Canada (and I am sure elsewhere) teachers are getting students to select and research a Great War soldier as as means to make the names change from a statistic to a real person. Here is a small sample of the "honour" websites on the internet including the War Memorials of Barwick in Elmet & Scholes example.

Chailey 1914-1918
This website is a tribute to the men and women of Chailey during the First World War: those who nursed or were nursed there; those who answered their country's call; those who lie in some corner of a foreign field. This website comprises separate sections on Chailey Parish, the 'hospitals': Hickwells and Beechland House, and the protagonists: patients, nurses and Chailey's men. A narrative, The Hospital Way tells the full story of Chailey's Great War. It is a careful and detailed documentation of this specific district and their actions and lives during the war.

More Than a NameA Memorial to the Men of Stockport, Cheshire, England
This Great War memorial website contains the alphabetical listing of more than 2800 names of men (and one woman) who were associated with the Stockport region of England. These soldiers are cross-indexed with their regiment or unit, locality and some references may contain a short biography and/or details on the battle or event that lead to their death. In addition, the site also contains a growing list of general memorials and their inscriptions to the Missing in Combat. This project is intended to ensure that these men, who gave their lives in the service of their country nearly 100 years ago, are not forgotten. A John Hartley website. [CEF Study Group - May 2006]

To Keep in Memory - War Memorials of Barwick in Elmet & Scholes
This simple website (renamed) commemorates and offers short biographies of the men from Barwick in Elmet, and Scholes who were lost in both world wars. The website, if you search, also offers a poignant reminder of a modern day parents' loss of a son – past and present, many others have experienced and understand.

Hello Nigel

Yes, that is what I am after. It will be great to some from Northern Ireland

I, as you can see, post only the data, the photos are on another site. This way it saves space on this forum but on the other site you can start an album because space is abundant.
