I'm retired and have nine grandchildren who I spend a lot of time with. One of my interests is connecting with people overseas on the internet who will visit war graves and take photos for family members who are unable to go there themselves.|

|Tom Gray||RE: Pte Lyttle|
Thank you for your reply. Actually they aren't my relatives. About ten years ago my father purchased an old photograph album from a junk sale and there were some pictures of WW1 Canadian soldiers inside. on the backs of two of the pictures were two names, Pte Charlie Lyttle and Pte Lawrence Blair Campbell. Well ten years later we've been able to link up the stories of four young men. Charlie Lyttle, Judson Harold Ellis (who was killed with him and who's nephew I've just recently been able to contact), Alfred Lyttle (Charlie's brother who was killed about two years later) and Lawrence Blair Campbell who was in the same unit as Charlie and Judson and was the only one of the four to survive the War.
I have, shall we say, a substantial military family history myself but somehow it feels important to make sure there is someone thinking of these four young men.

During an internet search I spotted that you had left a virtual message for Pte Alfred Lyttle and his brother Charles. I have spent the last 10 years researching these two soldiers (and two others that served with them).
It has reached the point where I shall be marching in WW1 Canadian uniform along the last route taken by Charles and then from his final resting place 15 miles to the memorial where Alfred is commemorated.
Well I just wanted to say thank you, I am attempting to find any surviving relatives for these four men and am very glad that there are people out there who know their names still.

You posted a memorial flame for a soldier who died in 1946. was this for David Rymer? He was my Great Uncle. Are we related by some chance?

Thank you so much Margaret Rose, it is a wonderful thing you all do for this site.
The god news is that Wiliam's Great Great Grand Daughter saw my message on his memorial on Remembrance day and emailed me!
Kindest regards to you

Hello Margaret Rose
I was overjoyed to see a picture of William's Headstone and wanted to make contact to see if you knew any of his family in Canada as i am drawing a blank in my search for living relatives.
There is one chap, Ken Wakeling, who appears to be directly related, but most of his tree is private and he hasn't been on Ancestry.com for a year and therefore may not have seen my message to him.
The parts of Ken's tree that are public show that his family mistakenly think Williams' parents are Canadian when they actually hail from Surrey & Buckinghamshire in England, and i would love to get in touch to discover more about those living to hear stories about those we once knew.
If you can assist in any way i would greatly appreciate it.
Kindest wishes from London on this special Memorial Day
