Cenotaph info on Raymond Bray, died Featherson 1918. He was my husband's grandfather and we wld like to know if any other relatives asked for research, ie xtra info posted by u re Lillian Maud Bbray his wife, they had 2 girls Nancy and Joan, Joan was my husband's mother. Nancy's family have not enquired, but other family in chch may have, but we do not know their whereabouts or names, very secretive family, no history passed on at all. Any info wld b great. rgds Gillian Freeman.

I would appreciate a photograph of John Wilson Filmer thanks.. so sad so many soldiers died of Influenza at the Camp.. can be added to the ever growing collection. Maori TV are doing two soldiers for their Anzac Day Programme next year from this cemetery, Thomas Clark and Guy Bridgeman. My collection on the soldiers will be shared with Heritage Museum in Featherston as well. thank you. PentonyGraham@xtr.co.nz

Hi Adele, I have been given a small box of my Gt Grandmother's photographs, and in them is one of John Wilson Filmer, in his army uniform, at what must be Featherston army camp, 7 days before he died on 10/11/18(no relation to me). I am in contact with a man with the same surname, who may well be related (he is investigating). Would you like me to send you a copy of the photo? Kind regards, Teresa Neilson-Watt
