    Hello Kyle

    Harry Harrison's grave at Hessle Cemetery, Nr Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire.

    Apologies for poor picture quality-unfortunately all the CWGC graves in the cemetery could do with a right old clean-up. Really sad to see as the names are hardly readable. Send me a PM with your e-mail address if you require the photos sent to you.

    Hello Lesley,

    Many thanks for those I think the photo quality is very good but you are right the stones appear very dirty I think I`ll jot off a couple of lines to the CWGC :)

    Again many thanks :)

    For what it is worth I visited Bispebjerg Cemetary in Copenhagen. Here I took photoes of both the British and German headstones and uploaded them to Google map for everyone to see.

    You were right about the book shape but it has slid off its plinth.

    you can resize them using "resize image" if you dont have it you can download for free from microsoft

    first off right click over the image you want to resize you may well have it loaded
    you will see "resize image" click on that and will give you a few options
