Researching the women of The First World War who died or were killed

Jim Strawbridge is looking for photos of the graves of women who died or were killed during WW1.  For the past 18 years, Jim has been preparing a Register of WW1 serving female casualties for publication at his own expense as a lasting memorial to these oft-forgotten women. 

The Register will show the women in alphabetical order and will comprise a short biography together with photographs of them, their graves and  their memorials.  The photos Jim is currently looking for are listed on this thread of discussion on the Great War Forum website: http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3929-wanted-photos-nationwide/&page=64

If you are able to send photos of graves to Jim, he will place your name against the photos you supply, as an  acknowledgement.  Jim's e-mail address is jimstrawbridge@coinsale.fsnet.co.uk
