War Graves Project


We are currently trying to obtain photographs of Ormerod and Ormrod war graves from around the world, so that these can be added to the website, and viewed by those unable to visit the sites in person.

As well as war graves we are also trying to record details of memorials which commemorate Ormerods and Ormrods who fought in the Two World Wars.

In 2005, Ian, Paul and Martin visited France and Flanders, where over the course of a week we managed to visit 67 cemeteries and memorials, and photograph nearly a hundred individual graves and commemorations. These are now recorded at the Commonwealth War Graves section of the site.

A list of outstanding sites, for which we are still seeking photographs, is included below.
