Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
St. Mary's Churchyard
Bulwell (St. Mary) Churchyard, has been extended several times, and the numbers "1874" and "1891" indicate different extensions by their years. One War Grave, not exactly located, is indicated by a special memorial. There are 5 War Graves in the Churchyard, one of which is for a soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment attached to a Training Reserve Battalion.
We are extremely grateful to Richard Roberts (<email@example.com>) who has forwarded the photograph of John Hames' grave in this cemetery. Details of John Hames, and a photograph of St. Mary's Churchyard are below this photo.
