My Grandfather Robert Charles Marsden 42364 1st Bn East Yorkshire Reg died 26/8 1918 as a soldier in France. I was given info by Wargraves that his name was on Vis-En-Artois Memorial but have been unable to find it...someone listed all that regiments names but his was not on the list. Where else can I try please?

That is definitely what it says on the Commonwealth War Graves site. He was the husband of May Marsden of Mile End Road, London.

Yes that is correct. I asked someone who was going to France to have a look but there were names from his regiment but not his

You could try contacting the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and asking if his name has been missed off the memorial - it does sometimes happen.

This information is given on the CWGC site:-


The Panel Numbers quoted at the end of each entry relate to the panels dedicated to the Regiment served with. In some instances where a casualty is recorded as attached to another Regiment, his name may alternatively appear within their Regimental Panels. Please refer to the on-site Memorial Register Introduction to determine the alternative panel numbers if you do not find the name within the quoted Panels.

On the Commonwealth War Graves site page that shows his record, if you scroll down and then 'Click to view' the panel near the centre of the page, there is a typed list of names including Robert.

The top of the list is headed Stone 24
