    If you go to the CWGC website (www.cwgc.org), there is an entry for B.E.O. Bond there, which I suspect may be your chap.

    To be certain, do you have any other info - e.g regiment or a service number?

    Hi Heather,
    www.cwgc.org will give you details of his rank and regiment in the war, and also his date of death and place of burial.
    If you click on the cemetery name, you are given details about the cemetery. Underneath the 'details' box are further links to other casualties buried in the cemetery, plans, and photos.

    As you know he's an uncle, do we assume that you have his parents' names, and that you have him (and them) on the census?

    After reading Mark's reply, I have slapped my wrist for assuming that there is only one Bertram E O Bond. Though it is a very distinctive name and set of initials, I should know better.

    The 'Sldeirs died in the Great War database' includes an entry for Bertram Ernest Owen BOND L/Cpl 17th Battalion Royal Fusliers (City of London Regt) born Woking, died of wounds Aug 1916. This seems to match the entry on the CWGC web-site found by Mark and Pam.

    Surviving service records from WW1 are available online on the pay-per-view site 'ancestry'.

    A medal card for him can be downloaded from TNA's documentsonline

    Don't put in Bertram - just put in Bond and the initial B.
    Fifth entry out of six.

    See Pam's reply, above and have a go for yourself - the practice in searching will help you to use it in future.

    Default Bertram Bond

    Hello Heather,

    In May 1914 a lot of coverage was given in the "Woking News and Mail" about an explosion in Woking at 11, Canal Cottages. Bertram Bond (aged 22) was accused of the crime.


    I have several cuttings giving an extemely detailed account of the incident (including a picture of Bertram Bond) and his family which were also living in the property at the time, which I can send you.

    I too am descended from the Bond family, but they lived in LIMEHOUSE round about 1800.

    Hope this will be of assistance.

    Mark

    Hi Heather
    If you check out the Window on Woking website www.
    windowonwoking.org.uk/sites/goldsworthparkcommunityassociation/war/woking

    There is a lovely picture of the WW1 memorial and you can see his name very clearly
