    Bugger me ! Right then would any of you object if I wrote to them quoting this and asking for a grant off them to complete the ones who’ll require a death certificate ?

    Apologies for rounding out "Year 5" so late. I have some system problems at my end as such havent made an updates since the anniversary '' i.e around end of October. I have been hit with some PC problems which will be solved in a week or two.. so not many updates in recent weeks.


    One year Update (2023)

    120,838 records (98.70%) are "Accounted for".
    1,595 (1.30%) are still unaccounted.
    334 records (0.27%) have photographs

    That means we added about 2892 records in the fifth year. Again all the work done by Jon Heyworth. And the progress was better than the previous year!


    Year 1939 1940 1941 1942 1943 1944 1945 1946 1947
    Total Records 689 6886 13036 21407 29805 33068 13728 2389 1425
    Accounted 689 (100.00%) 6882 (99.94%) 12994 (99.68%) 21298 (99.49%) 29571 (99.21%) 32761 (99.07%) 13367 (97.37%) 2108 (88.24%) 1168 (81.96%)
    Unaccounted (0.00%) 4 (0.06%) 42 (0.32%) 109 (0.51%) 234 (0.79%) 307 (0.93%) 361 (2.63%) 281 (11.76%) 257 (18.04%)



    Milestones achieved

    < 1600 left
    < 1.5 % left
    Unaccounted for 1940 are 4 names away
    Every year is at 99% or above, but for 1945, 1946 and 1947
    We started adding "Faces to the Fallen" - another five year project?
