    Default Richard Charles Gray - war research memorial

    I am posting*concerning a website we have recently setup in honour of my father Richard Charles Gray who passed away in 2017

    My father was a great believer in researching and respecting fallen heroes of past wars.*

    He dedicated a lot of his time to researching and ensuring those lost souls really got the respect they deserved and most importantly were never forgotten.

    A couple of weeks ago we took his ashes to Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre and had the privilege of being able to scatter them behind a Lancaster Bomber from WW2* / Dambusters era whilst it had the engines on full thrust quite an experience.

    Over the past few weeks I have been working through all the research he had done on war veterans (2668 documents and 6311 photos) and compiling them into a website so that none of his work went to waste, so please anyone you know who has an interest in war history etc please pass on the link below.

    Thanks!

    A worthy project which I have bookmarked.

    Re your "Unknown Location" section, you may be able to place some of these using the Armed Forces Memorial site which covers many outside the WW1/WW2 date ranges of the better-known CWGC database. Here, for example, is the first on your list: Arthur Mann. The AFM database isn't complete, though; I have come across several military style headstones for people not included.
