CWGC - Lytham, Lancashire: Commemorating Alice Knowles of the Women's Royal Naval Service who died on 29th November 1918

If you’ve been following my weblog, you will know that I've recently been looking through the long list of women Casualties commemorated on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission list of 1914 - 1919 War Casualties. 

Cemeteries are listed alphabetically by the name of the cemetery, starting with Adelaide (West Terrace), South Australia and finishing with Harare (Pioneer) Cemetery, Zimbabwe. Under each cemetery are the names of those commemorated with brief details. 

Today, we visited Lytham (St. John the Divine) Churchyard in Lancashire, UK and found the grave of Alice Knowles, a Telephonist with the Women's Royal Naval Service, who died on 29th November 1918, aged 24.  In all, there are 15 WW1 graves in that cemetery. 
We decided to start a special web page to record the graves we manage to visit http://greatwargraves.blogspot.co.uk/ 

We are hoping you will have a look at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website and see if there is a cemetery near you that you could visit.   WE WILL REMEMBER THEM…
