Free wargrave photo site
« on: Thursday 09 January 14 00:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Not sure if this is well known or not, but I was just pointed to this website on another forum.

I requested a photo of a soldiers grave I was researching, and received the image within a few minutes

Hope it helps others

They are an excellent site and produce results very quickly.  They have covered most of England now.  I would encourage anyone who lives outside the UK to volunteer to help.  The instructions are very simple and literally involve visit a cemetery and taking photos.  All information is provided.  I live in Florida now and it was very interesting to visit the 2 cemeteries close to me and photograph the service men's graves.
