HC Deb 08 December 1920 vol 135 c2133W

asked the Secretary of State for War when the work of photographing graves of deceased soldiers, etc., in France and Flanders by the Imperial War Graves Commission is likely to be completed; and, seeing that many relatives are still awaiting these photographs, whether the work will be expedited?


Approximately 10,000 requests for photographs of graves remain to be completed. During the last few months the output averaged over 1,000 per week. Owing to short days and weather conditions, progress is now retarded, butj't is expected that the work will be completed by the end of April, 1921.
