Passchendaele Letter

The Clerk has recently received a letter from The Passchendaele Museum asking for help from local residents.

The Museum has recently identified the wartime burial grounds of over 1,400 missing Canadians on the Menin Gate. One of these was John Daniel, who died on 6/2/1916. Before enlisting, he worked as a grocer. A letter was sent to Mrs Caroline Daniel his next of kin, over 100 years ago, but the museum has been unable to trace this to a modern address.

They are seeking information from anyone in the area, who may have letters, pictures or stories related to him, his family or the house they lived or worked in.
