WW1 AND WW2 SERVICEMENS GRAVES IN DONEGAL
Throughout County Donegal there are graves of servicemen who died during World War 1 and World War 2.
They died either from their plane crashing here, their boat hitting a mine off our coast, their boat coming down and their body washed ashore. Many reasons, many bodies. Many are very young, some unidentified.
As we are out and about taking photographs of Donegal and in particular the churches and graveyards of County Donegal we find them and photograph them. We have gathered some of them here along with the details from the headstone.
The place of burial is first together with information from the stones and this is first followed by the photograph of the graves of those listed in the information piece.
If any of these are your relative we will be happy to forward you by email a photograph of the gravestone of your relative. Just use the contact page to let us know.
