The inscription on the headstone reads;-
IT IS NOT CHAOS AND DEATH
IT IS ETERNAL LIFE

Roisel town was occupied by British troops in April 1917, and evacuated after a strong defence by the 66th (East Lancashire) Division in the evening of the 22nd March 1918. It was retaken in the following September. Roisel Communal Cemetery Extension was begun by German troops, who buried immediately to the North of the Communal Cemetery. It was developed in October and November 1918, by the 41st, 48th, 53rd and 58th Casualty Clearing Stations, and it was completed after the Armistice by the concentration of British and German graves from the country North, East and South of Roisel.

There are now 877, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, 120 are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 12 soldiers from the United Kingdom and one from Australia who are known or believed to be buried among them.

Private Charles Harold Ingram. 23953.
12th Battalion Yorkshire Regiment. Killed 14 January 1917. Aged 26.
Born Stillington (Durham), Enlisted Middlesbrough.
Buried DELVILLE WOOD CEMETERY, LONGUEVAL.

(Although the CWGC register, SDGW, and the Green Howards Gazette all show him as "H Ingram", his name on the monumental inscription is given as Charles Harold Ingram".)

Buried in DELVILLE WOOD CEMETERY
Delville Wood was a tract of woodland, nearly 1 kilometre square, the western edge of which touched the village of Longueval in the Somme. On 14 July 1916 the greater part of Longueval village was taken by the 9th (Scottish) Division and on the 15th, the South African Brigade of that Division captured most of Delville Wood. The wood now formed a salient in the line, with Waterlot Farm and Mons Wood on the south flank still in German hands, and, owing to the height of the trees, no close artillery support was possible for defence.

There are now 5,523 burials and commemorations of the First World War in this cemetery. 3,593 of the burials are unidentified but there are special memorials to 27 casualties known or believed to be buried among them. Other special memorials record the names of three soldiers buried in Courcelette Communal Cemetery German Extension, whose graves were destroyed by shell fire.

The photos of the headstone and the cemetery are by Linda Lear (<linda@lear20.eclipse.co.uk>), to whom we are very grateful
