Ancre War Cemetery
Ancre War cemetery at Beaumont-Hamel was one of the cemeteries filled with casualties from the big Somme Offensive on 1 July 1916.
There are four members of the Essex Regiment with headstones at Ancre.
2nd Lt Ronald Bentall Horwood, Lance Sgt A J Wingate, Lance Corporal G M Doyle and Private L Eva.
All belonged to the 1st Essex although 2nd Lt Horwood was attached to the 1st Essex from the 3rd Essex.
Photographs of the headstones listed above are available free of charge although a small donation to Help for heroes charity would be appreciated.
