James Bowes of Westerdale

(By email)

I'm contacting your site as I wonder if anyone in Westerdale realises that this year will be the 100th Anniversary of the death of a Westerdale man, James Bowes.
His parents are buried in Westerdale church yard and James is mentioned on their headstone.

 James Bowes would be my Great Great Uncle, 2 of my sisters and I are going to Ypres next week to visit out Gt Gt Uncle's grave and will also be visiting the grave of James' parents on 13th Sept to mark this anniversary.
I have no idea if this is of any interest to anyone or if you have a local history group or anything

 [If this is of interest more details on request]
