An easy way to find the exact map reference of your suggested update is to use this site - http://www.gorissen.info/Pierre/maps/googleMapLocationv3.php - and then copy the co-ordinates into the email. There is also a Google Maps Labs plug-in which, if you enable it in Google Maps, allows you to see the lat and long of any location by holding down the shift key.

 

This map list has been developed by Brian Curragh and David Faulder. The WFA is very grateful to both for allowing the map to be shown here.

 

Details of recent finds and reburials of the remains of WW1 Servicemen found on the Western Front (please note that the map is incomplete as this is a work in progress).

The exact location of the finds (dotted icon) is not normally disclosed so the marker is placed on the village. Undotted icons are burial places. "Pin" icons represent finds not yet reburied.

Zoom in to see the shell-marked ground around the memorial which was being restored when Google photographed it.
