My great uncle gave his life for his country in the First World War and I only found out about 5 years ago where he is buried. Unfortunately there is no-one on that side of the family to tell, and as far as I know, no-one went to France to find him which is very sad. His name is inscribed on the Arras Memorial with all the other brave soldiers, so his body has never been found but now that I know where he is commemorated, my husband, my son and I go each year to visit his name.
