Woburn Abbey Cemetery, Funeral Service.

On Wednesday 28th March 2018 a burial service wias held in the afternoon at Woburn Abbey Cemetery, Cuinchy, France, for a soldier of the First World War.


The remains of a soldier of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders were discovered by a farmer in Cuinchy. Given the location of where the remains were found it is a possibility that this soldier was killed during the Battle of Loos in September 1915. However, there are too many soldiers of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders missing from that battle to identify this soldier.


The service has been organised by the Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre and attended by British Defence Staff, regimental representatives from The Royal Regiment of Scotland and local dignitaries. The CWGC will be providing the headstone.
