Relatives sought and found for Memorial Day Organisers

The majority of the relatives of soldiers had already been found by Stuart Gray during the 12 months before the event: these soldiers are not listed here.

Update: 14th March 2012
More relatives have been found after the event.  However, the purpose of this website was to support and record the search for relatives in the last three weeks before the event and the event itself.
It has not therefore been updated with information received after the event.

These are the results of the search for the last few relatives who were still missing three weeks before the event:
