In From The Cold

The In From The Cold Project (IFCP) was formed to research and identify all service men and women missing from the official Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) list of casualties from the First and Second World Wars and to get these soldiers, sailors and airmen their due recognition.

Debbie Kennett, my interview with her at WDYTYA Live will be posted soon, was recently successful in getting Tom Rutherford Cruwys commemorated on the CWGC site. Read about that here. Debbie has a Guild of One-Name Studies project for Cruwys.

The IFCP also advises that the CWGC will correct errors in their listings. It's not clear whether they will add "additional information" where none is presently given. I recently identified a WW1 BEF soldier Edward Digby as my second cousin twice removed so would be able to provide information to add the parents names. Does anyone have experience adding such information?
