I am in the process of writing a book, and have been researching Great War dead that are buried in my local cemetery in Northern Ireland. There are several graves that contain the remains of servicemen from England. So far I have been unable to trace them other than the area that they came from. I am looking in particular in your area (Dartmouth Rd, Foresthill) for one of them, and I was wondering if I would be able to place an appeal for information on this forum. Any photos or family details that I could get from any living relatives who might reside in the area would really help. I would be happy to send through the details to persons interested in assisting my search.
Thank you in anticipation.
