Denbighshire / BBC Wales

Thought this might be of interest to someone.

A search is on for descendants of a World War I veteran who has been given a gravestone 91 years after he died.

Herbert Taylor
is believed to have been the first WWI soldier buried with full military honours in Prestatyn, Denbighshire, in 1917.

However, a headstone was never paid for and a local historian believes this was because his family moved away.

Prestatyn Town Council, which paid for the stone, wants any relatives to attend a church service on Saturday.

I saw this article the other day on BBC News,
Hopefully someone may know of him. He came from Blaydon-on-Tyne.
Hopefully someone on here may be able to help. I have also posted this on the Armed Forces board.

Moderator comment - please post any replies on the topic on the Armed Forces board - thanks
