Thank you to the Blaydon Memorial Project. My grandfather eas only 9 years old when his older brother William Osborne died in WW1 so my mother knew no details of her Uncle Bill. Within minutes we have learned about my Great Uncle's fate and that he sadly died in April 1918. It has been useful to find information about the Uncle my mother and her siblings never got to meet.

Thank you to everyone who created and contributed to this website. It is much appreciated. My great grandfather lived in Blaydon and died in the Battle of Lys in 1918. His family remained in Blaydon. His supreme sacrifice will never be forgotten.
