Aberdeenshire / Re: John Taylor & Maria Taylor (Ross)
« on: Tuesday 27 July 21 11:33 BST (UK)  »
OK, Pauline, I see where your Great Grandmother is on the tree and how it all fits in. My Great Grandfather was Elizabeth's older brother. I have a tree on Ancestry and that has the family in it, along with some photos and some details.

You may already have this but the family was:
1860 - 1832 John
1861 - 1944 Mary Ann
1863 - 1898 Elizabeth
1865 - 1941 William
1867 - 1959 Arthur
1869 - 1944 Alexander
1871 - 1951 Christina
1874 - 1915 Robert
1878 - 1884 Maria

I'll be in touch re photos.

Richard

Hi Pfig - John and Maria are my Great Great Grandparents as well. I have done quite a bit of research around the family, and have family photographs, including one that could include John and Maria. We've also got photos of John and Jessie and family - John and Maria's son and daughter-in-law. Like you, we find having photos of the family makes a huge difference and so we're always looking out for them.

It would be really good to make contact and exchange info and pictures.

Australia / Re: Camperdown cemetery - anyone know of an index?
« on: Tuesday 27 July 21 09:01 BST (UK)  »
Just come across this thread. I've also been looking for a grave in Camperdown and used this site which lists all the graves in both alphabetical and chronological order:

If you're still looking, this may help (I don't think it's been referred to in the earlier part of the thread - apologies if it has and I am repeating something you already have.)

That's brilliant - thank you for answering my two questions. (I should have guessed AC, of course...).

World War One / L/Cpl Alick Taylor RAMC
« on: Wednesday 21 July 21 09:46 BST (UK)  »
L/Cpl Alick Taylor, RAMC (301269)- my Great Uncle - died on 15 April 1918. The War Diary makes reference to him being wounded and evacuated, but I cannot find where. I am struggling to read it all, but I think it says

301269 a L/Cpl Taylor HC (?) gun shot wound back - wounded and evacuated. This was at Pradeele (??).

So, two questions, if anyone can help - does it say "HC" and if so what is that? And where is Pradeele, if that is what it says. (The entry above Alick's mentions some killed at Stralzeele, so I guess it's near there?)

Thanks for any help you can give.

Jim - You have provided me with a very comprehensive picture. Thank you.

From the comfort of my living room, I am humbled when I read about the challenges these men faced and the sacrifices they made.

Jim - That is excellent, thank you very much. It really helps me to pin-point the action that my Great Uncle William was in and where he died. I had been using the War Diaries and "The Old Sixteenth" as sources, but this gives the location very precisely.

Thank you.

Jim1 - Thanks. Those maps are excellent

Nanna52 - Thanks for this information. My next task is to research another Great Uncle, this time serving in the NZ Army. Luckily, he survived the war and lived out his life in Invercargill. Unfortunately, the regimental War Diaries in his case are not as comprehensive and the copies I have seen are almost illegible, they are so faint.
