The Family Grave and Memorial photos are courtesy of
Bernard Sharp, and can be found on his St James' Churchyard DVD.

Each of the other photos above are my own, smaller thumbnails of the originals,
which are too big to post here as the site is nearly full and, sadly, space forbids.
But if anyone would like a full-sized original of a grave, of course I will
gladly email them a copy. Most of them are just over 4Mb,
and would fill slightly more than an A4 sheet, or would scale down to A4.
Just send me an email with the name of the photo required.

The grave numbers are those that appear in the
Monumental Inscription booklets for St James'
as published by the
East Yorkshire Family History Society

The Sutton & Wawne Museum would like to pay just tribute here, and thanks,
to Jamie and Ivor, the gardeners for St James', for their hard work over the years
in maintaining accessibility to the war graves, as much as can be practicable.
Especially so in recent years, against a backdrop of ever-decreasing funds.
As the older parts of the churchyard get ever more mature, the trees get ever higher,
and the grass grows ever more lush every summer, they're really up against it.

It has only just come to my attention that when the British Legion crosses
mysteriously appear each November, it is Jamie and Ivor who see to it,
and make sure all is well. And it was Jamie who pointed out the extra family graves
and memorials of war casualties, so long and erroneously missed from this list,
and now correctly in place in time for the 2014 Armistice Service.
Better late than never, and well done you guys, and thanks for all you do.

Sutton on Hull churchyard - with the grave of Flight Lieutenant Pat Hughes DFC
Sutton Churchyard, clearly showing the
white headstone of the war-grave of
Flight Lieutenant Pat Hughes DFC
killed during the Battle of Britain,
who came from Cooma,
New South Wales, Australia .
(click picture for larger image)
Pat was credited with shooting down the
Luftwaffe ace, von Werra, notorious as the only
German to escape British custody and
make it back to Germany.
More details about where Pat was from,
his life and family, etc, are now available
on a page dedicated to the memory of
Flight Lieutenant Pat Hughes DFC
( opens in new window for more images )
. . and the good news is, as of 3 July 2002
we are now in contact with both Pat's family,
and the local couple who for years
have tended Pat's grave, laying flowers every year.
The wonder of the World Wide Web . . .

For those of you looking for any details on any service personnel
killed during either World War, wherever in the world they
are buried, with or without a known grave, including those lost or
buried at sea, in the Merchant Service as well as the Royal Navy and
the navies of Commonwealth nations, you really must look at . .
