Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Gail.
Roy was last here in 2014, but if he’s still using the email he registered with, he should have had a message that there’s a reply for him, and...

Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Thomas.
Geordie was last here in May 2014. If he’s still using the same email address, he should get a message telling him that someone has answered his...

If you don’t have access to the book “Soldiers who died in the Great War” (it’s on Ancestry), provide a couple of names and numbers of men you’re talking about. It’s usually more specific than CWGC…
