    Thank you for posting this article , my partner is decended from Pte Richard Evans who was in B Coy and killed 04/07/1915. He is buried in Bedford House Cemetery along with some of his brothers in arms who died with him that day. He was born in Montgomeryshire “mid Wales” and moved to Chapel which is where he met his wife and had 2 children before leaving for the front.
    We went to visit him for the first time near Ypres and laid a memorial to him.
    We are planning to visit him again and I intend to do some research on him, the soldier the man the father.
    Kind regards James and Tracy xxx

      Dear both
      Many thanks for your message. There are a couple of references to Richard on the site:-



      He was killed by a shell as the men were returning from a working party. Hope that you have a good visit – it’s always nice to go over there – say hello – and remember them all.
      best wishes

        Hi Mike thanks it was an inspiring visit to Ypres and Northern France and we were not expecting to feel this way but we want to return again and pay our respects and discover more about what life was like over there.

        Kind regards James

    Hi Mike, I am the great granddaughter of 1566 Pte Percival Jackson. Dyer from Chinley; Disc 5.8.14*.

    I was wondering if you had any other information about him? I know that he survived the war and lived until 1963.

    It has been amazing to see the photos!
