It is very odd that the Arras cemetery in the Pas-de-Calais is not included and there are of course soldiers who were buried in the UK. This list has always been known to be incomplete and there is another list of soldiers who fell or simlar words.

However, just perusing the Somme and Ancre entries, it is more than obvious that there are huge gaps in the coverage. I am assuming that further entries will be added in future, but perhaps rewording of the current information might be a good idea, to indicate that this is NOT the complete list. I know that my grandfather is commemorated at Thiepval – but as the names beginning with A have yet to be added, it might be misleading for others trying to locate their ancestors. Just a thought!!!!
