of the CD-ROM's
is entitled “Far From Home” as
it reflects the sentiment that, for many of the Canadians who
are buried on this side of the Atlantic, there was often a family
back in Canada. Frequently, those families never saw their loved
one again after he or she embarked on the voyage that brought
them to England and into the most brutal War in living memory.
of CD-Roms features World War One Canadian graves in 868 different
locations across Britain. They are offered by County using the
pre-1974 boundaries, as these correspond to the references
within the CWGC files. In certain cases, large numbers of graves
or locations within a single county, will be published in two
parts. In total, the number of available volumes offered will
eventually reach 100, thus facilitating reduced prices for the
CD-Roms. The range will save our customers buying a much larger
volume when they may only be interested in one particular soldier,
sailor or nurse.
There is a
header page for every location with a picture and description
of each Church or Cemetery. Where space permits, additional photographs
or points of interest about a particular place or casualty have
been included. A profile for every individual has been compiled
alongside the photograph of his or her headstone. The Canadian
flag and memorial cross on each grave represents the authors unique
signature. Often for interest, the authors have compiled extensive
files on soldiers who were either buried in remote churchyards,
had an unusual story to research, or strong family connections
to the locality. You are invited to email and enquire what additional
unpublished information (if any) we may hold on a particular person.
The complete listing of all the volumes showing the counties covered
and estimated publication date can be accessed by clicking here.
Because the majority of CD-Roms will take some time to be produced
by the authors, please feel free to contact us if you wish to
enquire about a particular soldier, sailor or nurse and the location
in which he or she is buried.
