Now, now, GB! That's not nice! Although I know how you feel.

Reggie, it's quite possible the poster has been back several times to see what has been added, but just hasn't bothered to mention it.

It really doesn't take long to say "Thanks".

So why ask for help with Croyland if it is now called Crowland ?

If I not knowing the area can find out info why could not the poster find it :-S


Andysmum Report 22 Aug 2013 10:42

I have ancestors from Croyland/Crowland. They are the same place and at some point the spelling changed, but I'm not sure when.


Reggie Report 21 Aug 2013 22:37

The poster is just going to have to do what I did - google using the correct name for the war memorial and info is available.

Any idea of regiments ?


CuriousFish Report 21 Aug 2013 21:04

Names search.
There are two names on this memorial that I would like to know more about.
I have tried Commonwealth War Graves website, with no luck. The local council have not answered my email enquiry.
The names are Private Thomas A Hall
Sergent John Hall MM
I don't know if the period covered is WWI or WWII
Can anyone out there tell me where else to look
