The Anderson Fonds: Grave Sites

There were a number of photographs taken of the grave sites of the Milton Soldiers that were KIA (killed in action) in Belgium and France. These images are very rare, as they depict the grave as it appear circa 1919 and not as they are today after the cemeteries were rebuilt after the armistice. The current cemeteries are as described on the web site of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, where you will also find images of the cemeteries, the grave locations, and details of those interred.

Where possible, we will match the historic grave photograph with the current grave, if the image is available on the project site of the Maple Leaf Legacy Project or a similar site. Additional information on the individual Milton Soldiers is available on this web site at Soldier Details & Service Records.
