Picture of grave Hotten War Cemetery Belgium
Hello Des, thank you for your excellent work. I am researching family friend Flight Lieutenant George Simpson Henderson who was killed in action 13/08/44. He lies in Hotten War Cemetery. You have kindly posted a photograph of a head stone in the Find a Grave website but unfortunately the picture is of another serviceman, a F Henderson who also is interred in Hotten Cemetery. Would you happen to have the correct picture in your records so that we can correct this. Many thanks, David Murray

I wish to thank you so very much for the location and grave of my husbands relative. I will certainly acknowledge you in my records, for the find. You are to be commended on your work! My own ancestors came from Holland in Westbroek!

Many thanks for the photo. The family of his co-pilot is planning a visit to the site of the crash in the next few weeks.
Today, as you know, we commemorate the anniversary of D-Day. May we never again see death on such a scale.

Thank you so much, after all these years the extended family now has a photo of their dear uncle's resting place and where it is located. I can't wait to share it with them. Your service is much appreciated.

J'espere que vous parlez Anglais parce que je ne le parle que le Français un peu. S’il vous plaît pardonnez mes erreurs.

À un certain moment, vous avez visité le cimetière américain de Henri-Chapelle à Liège, en Belgique. Vous avez pris une photo de la pierre tombale de l’homme ci-dessus. Il était un cousin de mon père. Il meurt au combat pendant la seconde guerre mondiale et fut enterré en Belgique. À ma connaissance, je suis le premier membre de la famille de voir réellement ce que ressemblent sa pierre tombale et la beauté de son lieu de repos. Au nom de notre famille, je vous remercie.


At some point, you visited Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Liege, Belgium. You took a photo of the grave marker of the man above. He was my father's first cousin. He died in the fighting during World War II and was buried in Belgium. To my knowledge, I am the first family member to actually see his grave marker and the beauty of his resting place. On behalf of our family, I thank you.
