You should be able to trace your relatives who died in the battle of the Somme WW1 through access to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's website. This was only opened in November 1998 and receives over 600,000 hits a week so it is difficult and time consuming to get through. However it is well worth the effort. Their Debt of Honour Register gives incredible access to information on grave sites and as much personal/family detail as is available. It is a most moving and fitting tribute to those lost in battle. I hope you will be successful......initials are not needed - in fact wrong initials can be awkward- the surname/ and year of death should be sufficient. Good Luck! Pat Scutt
