Is Passchendaele part of your family history?
No matter how impressive a visit to CWGC Tyne Cot Cemetery or other cemeteries and memorials is, one can only find a name there, with the scantiest of details. ‘The Passchendaele Archives’ intends to put a face and a story to those names by building up personal archives with photographs, family and military information. To be part of the Passchendaele Archives project, a file will only be started if a photograph is available and if he fell during the Battle of Passchendaele, from 12 July till 15 November 1917. Nonetheless you can always contact us for more information about relatives without a photograph or who fell in this area outside these dates.
Karen Derycke, Simon Augustyn and Lee Ingelbrecht are the driving forces behind this project. Historians Karen Derycke and Simon Augustyn are responsible for the research of the fallen. Lee Ingelbrecht offers cartographic support through his training in landscape development.
