1 comment:

  1. James Newman and Walter Bennett were buried in Quaregnon cemetery until 1953 at which time they were re-interred at Cement House Cemetery.
    8 soldiers were moved from Quaregnon. Three from the 1st Beds (the 3rd being my great grand-uncle Solomon Brown) and three from the Highland Ligh Infantry. The other two soldiers were unknown. So its possible that either Harry Moulster and/or Samuel Peck may be buried alongside. ( all 8 were buried at Cement House Cemetery next to each other.)
