Horncastle Civic Society and my ancestors

I have been approached by the Horncastle (Lincolnshire) Civic Society to provide information and photographs about my grandfather (who came from Horncastle) for a commemorative booklet the society is publishing in September 2014. My grandfather was killed on 1 April 1918, aged 33, in the Battle of the Somme. He is buried in the Aix-Noulette Communal Cemetery Extension in France. I have also been in contact with the Nottinghamshire County Council as they have set up an online Roll of Honour and my grandparents and their four children were living in Nottinghamshire when my grandfather enlisted. It is great that such initiatives are up and running, getting ready for commemorative services this year and in 2015.
