  1. Problems Loading Photos

    Anyone else have problems loading photos onto this site. I did read some other people having the same issues. The site administration blame my computer, but I also have problems on my Ipad too which discounts their assumption and I have no other issues loading photos onto other websites.

                    • Ideas for Future Updates

                      This is a couple of ideas for future improvements to the site. When updating the unit section of the profile, the most recent update is the one which appears on the main page although the rank or unit may be one held previously and not the most current, it could do with a box to tick to make one of them the primary one.

                      Secondly, the awards section for bravery awards e.g MM or MC should automatically appear in the profile page instead of having to put them in the names section for them to appear.

                      • Alphabetical order for Life Stories

                        I'd like an option to reorder remembered Life Stories in alphabetical order rather that order of finding - is that a possibility?

                        • correction for R W Mrs Anderson

                          Please can you remove the "Mrs" from this
                          https://search.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/record?id=GBM/MCI/0053031
                          It's made it difficult to find him.

                              • Roger T Howarth 292982

                                I have found his Life Story and know that he has an entry in CWGC http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/380894/HOWARTH,%20R%20T
                                but cannot get to that record from his Life Story page. Please can you add his CWGC record to the Life Story. Is it because he is buried in All Saints Churchyard?

                                  • Missing Charles Thomas Young #8102 Royal East Kent Buffs

                                    1906 - 1921: Pte. No. 8102 The Buffs, Royal East Kent Regiment.

                                    Charles served in the Royal East Kent Regiment, The BUFFS (No. 8102) 1906 to the end of World War One. He was classified as a signaller in the BUFFS in 1912. He served in France from the 7th Sept. 1914 and was with the 1st and 7th Battalion. No records relating to his service 1914-1920 can be traced as they were destroyed by enemy air action in 1940. The medal rolls show he has the 1914 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal.

                                    Please add. Thank you!

                                        • Missing Service Number and Medal Roll information

                                          hello - following on from Mike Newbury's assistance in creating a record for Stanley William Ginn (https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7671144), I have been searching for his records in the WWI Service Medal and Award Rolls and Index Cards and cannot find him. Also, there is no Service Number given for him on any documentation I have found online, including Commonwealth War Graves Commission documents, eg Baghdad Cemetery listings. Does anybody know why this might be, that there is no medal roll or service number for him ? The only service number I have is on the front of his Small Book…
