The Bedfordshire Regiment in the Great War
War Graves of the Bedfordshire regiment
Pozières Cemetery and Memorial to the missing on the Somme
Wargraves and Memorials to the missing photographs
Having visited many cemeteries, memorials and churchyards in the time I have been researching the regiment, I have over 2,000 photographs of gravestones and memorials. Credit also gies to Chris Collier who has provided close to 100 of the graves from the Bedfordshire area. Also to Michael Robson and Ralph McLean (of the South African War Graves project) who forwarded many of the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire men's graves from the Middle East and North Africa.
Wargrave photographs can be viewed by clicking the links built into the table .
There are also photographs of the regimental panels from Memorial to the missing here.
If the grave you want is not in the table, try The War Graves Photographic Project. It is a major collaborative project with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) to photograph all CWGC graves and make them available to those who want them. There is a charge for this service but I am told the response is superb (although I have not personally used them, so cannot claim to know either way!) and the quality is worth the cost.
If you would like to see where a relative is buried but are unable to visit the cemetery, this site will be of interest. Giving 360 degree views of the cemeteries, it captures the essence of them more than still photography can. Pozieres is the featured cemetery in the link but have a look around for others.
