As can be seen, the website has been completely redesigned, and new memorials are being added.
Comments and suggestions will be welcomed.
from the internet I found out that you are working on the Biography of Brigadier WA Sheil. He was killed on April 29, 1945 a mine and then buried in Reeßum (Resum) and later on the Empire Woodland Cemetery.
I (81 years) can still clearly remember the tomb in Reeßum. For our local chronicle, where I work, it would be very helpful if I had more information about Brigadier Sheil. Could you with further information, photos or references complement my work?
I would like now to thank you for the effort by looking into your documents and hope for an positive response.
My English is not always correct, please excuse me.

I'm looking for information on any monuments/memorials erected in Dublin for the centenary celebrations of the 1798 Rising. Were there any erected in 1898?
thank you, Liz

The website does not record date of erection of memorials. The National Graves Association may be able to help.
The B.E. should be V.C. George Campbell Wheeler was awarded the VC for an action in Mesopotamia on 23rd February 1917 when he and men of 2/9th Gurkas were tasked with crossing the river Tigris at Shumran bend and clearing Turkish forces from the opposite bank. I think this error is worthy of correction!
I am grateful to Peter for pointing out this error.
I am trying to find out where my grandfather Peter Kennedy and his brother Thomas Kennedy (who my mother was told died in the 'Boer' War are from. We have no birth certificates of my grandfather or his brother. The only thing we know is that he said he was from Dublin, Ireland or very close to the city.
I have been trying to research on my own, but truly difficult. My father (Joseph Patrick Kennedy) was born in Chicago, 11-25-1927. He passed away in 1992. I am trying to learn about my grandfather from Ireland. My grandmother Mary Lydon was from Galway. Thank you for any help or input.
To Craig K. I am afraid I have no information about burials. The National Graves Association (nga.ie) can probably help.
