Arras Memorial, Faubourg d'Amiens British Cemetery, Arras, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France: F. Ashforth

During our recent visit to France and in order to visit some of the many war memorials located in this region we spent a few days camped at Boiry-Notre-Dame, 10km east of Arras, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France.

The Arras Memorial at the Faubourg d'Amiens British Cemetery at Arras commemorates the 34,785 soldiers of the forces of the United Kingdom, South Africa and New Zealand, with no known grave, who died in the Arras region between the spring of 1916 and 7 August 1918. One of these soldiers was Frank Stuart ASHFORTH 1892-1918, my great great uncle.
