Portsea Island is a small , flat, low-lying island (measuring 24 km², or 10² miles) just off the southern coast of England. The island is located within the traditional and ceremonial county of Hampshire and contains the vast majority of the city of Portsmouth.

Portsea Island is the third largest island by population of all islands in the British Isles after the mainlands of Great Britain and Ireland, it also has the highest population density.

Closeup map of Portsea Island, Hampshire, England

To the geographical east of Portsea Island lies Hayling Island, separated by Langstone Harbour. To the west is the peninsular mainland town of Gosport, separated by Portsmouth Harbour. To the south, it faces into the Spithead area of the wider Solent. A narrow tidal channel along the northern edge of Portsea Island, known as Portsbridge Creek, separates Portsea Island from the mainland.

Three main road bridges (from west to east: the M275 motorway, the A3 and the A2030) connect the island to the mainland road network, along with a minor pedestrian and bicycle bridge. There is also a small road bridge connecting Portsea Island to Whale Island, a restricted Royal Navy shorebase establishment within Portsmouth Harbour.

Portsea Island has four railway stations (Portsmouth Harbour, Portsmouth & Southsea, Fratton and Hilsea) connected by an island branchline to the mainland railway network via a short railway bridge at Portsbridge Creek. In addition there are ferry services to Gosport (on the mainland), Hayling Island and the Isle of Wight. There are also ferries to The Channel Islands, northern France and northern Spain.

Portsea Island gives its name to a relatively commercial and historic neighbourhood (adjoining the south-western “city centre”) of Portsmouth known as Portsea, which has had variable use in local government but has long been a parish of the island. source: Wikipedia

Postal Code: M21 7GL

Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Greater Manchester, England, three miles south of Manchester city centre. It was opened in 1879. It is the largest cemetery in the United Kingdom and second largest in Europe.

The main area of the cemetery is located to the north of Barlow Moor Road and to the west of the A5103 Princess Road; a northwards extension is situated to the north of Nell Lane. Manchester City Council owns and administers the cemetery.

There is a Jewish Cemetery in the northwest section, next to Barlow Moor Road and a Muslim section adjacent to it. The rest of the area of the cemetery is divided into plots for particular religious denominations, e.g., Anglicans, Roman Catholics, others.

A war memorial stands here to commemorate Allied servicemen who died in the World Wars: many of them died in the two military hospitals in south Manchester (i.e. those at Grangethorpe Road, Fallowfield, and Nell Lane, West Didsbury).

Immediately adjacent to the northwest corner of the cemetery, also on Barlow Moor Road, is the Manchester Crematorium which opened in 1892, the second in the United Kingdom. Near the entrance to its grounds the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) erected a memorial stone to 14 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War who were cremated here, while 177 servicemen and women who were cremated during the Second World War are listed on the screen wall at the cemetery’s Second World War war graves plot.

During the First World War, Manchester contained between thirty and forty war hospitals, including the 2nd Western General Hospital and the Nell Lane Military Hospital for prisoners of war. Many of those buried in the cemeteries and churchyards of the city died in these hospitals.

During the Second World War, there was a Royal Air Force Station at Heaton Park, Manchester. Manchester Southern Cemetery contains burials of both wars, the majority of them scattered. There are also separate plots for First and Second World War burials, but in neither case are the graves marked individually; instead, each plot has a Screen Wall bearing the names of those buried there. Each plot has a Cross of Sacrifice. In all, 803 Commonwealth casualties of the First World War, including 1 unidentified, and 475 from the Second World War, including 3 unidentified, are now commemorated in the cemetery; there is also 1 non-war service grave.

The Screen Wall in the Second World War plot also bears the names of 177 servicemen and women whose remains were cremated. Further memorials in this plot commemorate 17 Polish servicemen buried there, and a number of casualties of both wars buried in other cemeteries and churchyards in the Manchester area whose graves could no longer be maintained.

Casualties buried in the following cemeteries and churchyards are now alternatively commemorated on Screen Wall Memorials in Manchester Southern Cemetery:

Ashton-under-Lyne (St Michael) Churchyard Extension
Birch-in-Rusholme (St James) Churchyard
Bury (Brunswick) United Methodist Cemetery

Dunmanway, County Cork, Ireland

Saint Mary's, Dunmanway, Cork, Ireland

Dunmanway has been inhabited since prehistoric times, as testified by a Bronze Age trumpet in the British Museum. 19th century references date the founding of Dunmanway to the late 17th century, when the English crown settled a colony there to provide a resting place for troops marching between Bandon and Bantry. By 1700, about thirty families lived in the town.

Sir Richard CoxLord Chancellor of Ireland from 1703 to 1707, was the town’s most important early patron. Cox obtained a grant from King William III to hold market days and fairs in the town and strongly encouraged the development of the local flax industry. To that end, Cox imported artisans from Ulster to teach the required skills. He sponsored numerous incentives for local residents involved in making linen, including rent-free housing for top producers, bonuses for efficient labourers, rewards for schoolgirls who showed strong loom skills, and production contests with generous prizes. In 1735, the town consisted of forty houses and two to three hundred people. By 1747, the linen industry was well established, and Cox’s personal census recorded 557 people. Two years later, it rose to 807.    source: Wikipedia

He served in World War II with Allies. He was wounded, but hemorrhaged to death during the surgery probably in a hospital in London, England.

Ireland tried to stay neutral during World War II. And..the Irish named those that left Ireland to help fight with the British and Allies…deserters. But…David fought to help keep the Nazis from conquering the world. To me he was a hero…he was fighting for what he thought was right. If he had gone back to Ireland he would have been banned from any kind of government employment. David would have had no way to feed his family. There were very few jobs to be had. He would have been shamed and ostracized.

The Irish in the British Armed Forces refers to the history of Irish people serving in the British Armed Forces (including the British Army, the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force and other elements). Ireland was ruled as part of the United Kingdom from 1800-1922 and during this time in particular many Irishmen fought in the British Army. Different social classes joined the military for various reasons, including the Anglo-Irish officers who thoroughly identified with the British Empire, while others, typically poorer Irish Catholics did so to feed their families or seeking adventure. Many Irishmen and members of the Irish diaspora in Britain and also Ulster-Scots served in both World War I and World War II as part of the British forces.

David and Jean had four children: Anne, Adrian (D.G.), David Anthony, and Rose Marie Aherne-Conroy and raised them in London, London, England, United Kingdom.

Also known as: Earlsfield Cemetery, Magdalen Road Cemetery, Wandsworth Earlsfield Cemetery

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Wandsworth Cemetery is located on Magdalen Road (SW18), in Earlsfield district of Wandsworth, London, England. The cemetery was opened about 1878.
Though Wandsworth, like almost every other council-built cemetery in this part of London, has been crammed into an irregular space between road and railway line, it has managed to preserve a peaceful, country-like air. This is due in large part to the beautiful tree planting throughout the site, and Wandsworth Council are to be congratulated on their attentive but not overbearing maintenance of the site.
The monuments themselves are sadly not quite so pleasing. Things begin well, with a series of large and respectable polished granite edifices in the area around the chapels, but these are soon replaced with the usual monotonous rows of slabs, unrelieved by anything of the individual. Only occasionally has a little imagination been brought to bear: Rebecca Harding’s weeping willow, or a pair of torches strangely burning upright, or the essay written by the railwaymen of Waterloo in memory of their deceased inspector.
