Wondering if anyone can help me Ii am looking for a war memorial.

my father in law remembers when he was a young boy been taken to a war memorial in Dundee by his grandmother. to see the name of a uncle John Henry Rogers who died WW1.

John Henry Rogers was born in Jarrow co Durham 1897. when he died during the war,  his mother had his name put a war memorial in Dundee Scotland  Why nobody know  except that his grandmother did moved to Scotland.
of course as this all happen when my father in law was a young boy memories could have gone a bit astray he is now 76 :)

the problem i have is i cant find a death for John Henry Rogers i have looked at the CWG  and not find any thing  i don't have a number or a regiment for him.

in fact the only information i have is his birth  and where he lived on the

so this i s a bit  like looking for a needle in a haystack,  a very small needle in a very large haystack

any idea anyone please

Thank you Velda and Jorose.
I found my uncle Tony  birth on freebmd 1923 which say his mothers surname was Burnham. my mum seems to think her first name could have been Thelma, she also  says that  everyone called her aunty Thelma  and she had a sister called Babe not  sure what that would be short for or  if it was just a nick name.

i am going to have to get my uncles birth to make sure of his mothers name  his family.  if i can get to 1911 it will make things a bit easier

oh well never mind this is the fun off it all   

thank you again  :)

hopefully someone out there can help me.

I have an old photo  of a gentleman who i believe is my uncle's father (my uncle by marriage to my dads sister )

on the back of the photo is an address 187 Droop Street, the word Sweep.  the name of J.C.Gray 512 Harrow Road Paddington  W.     which is I believe is the photographer.

i have looked on the 1911 census  for both address and the names Powell and Grey  are not at those addresses.

I was wondering if someone could look at the electoral rolls for the area. around the years 1911 and 1923(1923 was the year my uncle was born )

opps sorry the name  of my uncles father i believe is Charles Powell

unfortunately i don't really have a lot of information on uncles family  andI cant ask him as he is now very ill.

He has said that he had two brothers and a sister   all died when they were young by either drowning or electrocuted i think the sister died of the flu this all happened in the 1920's  i don't even know the names of the brothers and sister. and still looking

they lived i think in the mile end area of london

thank you lots if you can help
