"5th February 2013 - Thank you so much for the photographs, none of us ever knew our great grandad, not even our grandad as he was only 2 when he was killed in WW1. I found the commemoration for him on the CWGC a few years before our grandad died, and it meant a lot to him to know his dad was remembered in France as well as the local church, and now for us to have the actual pictures of his name is so special. You're doing a fantastic job and providing a much welcome service for many. So again thank you. "

"3rd February 2013 - Thank you so much for the photos and for your help with this particular photo, which does indeed make it easier to read. I've used the TWGPP several times for my family tree research and for medals I own and it's a fantastic service which I totally support and appreciate and will be using many more times. I have some health problems which prevent me from travelling much, so being able to see these gravestones and feel as if I'm still paying my respects in a small way is fantastic. Keep up the good work. Kind regards, "

"31 January 2013 - Thank you so much. It really is a wonderful thing what that this project has achieved. For families to be able to obtain copies of their relatives gravestones is very touching and quite amazing actually. I didn't know my Great Grand Uncle was in WW1 until last week when I started to research the family tree online. Thanks to the power of the internet. My father will be very touched to receive a copy of this photo as he was in the Australian army for over 30 years and toured many times overseas. To have a relative that was awarded the DCM will mean a lot to him. Thank you again for providing this service. All the best "

"30 January 2013 - Dear Sir I have today received the photograph of the above grave as I requested. Not only one picture but three!! Thank you so much for these - it means a great deal to me and will mean more to my mother who is Robert Howards niece but has only a recollection of a handsome young man in uniform about whom she knows so little. I'm doing some family history research for her and these photographs are indeed a prize which will no doubt cause tears of joy as it is something about which she has wondered for many years. She has always remembered him on Armistice Day but will now be able to do so with greater knowledge and deeper understanding. Your work is a great thing to do and I'm sure brings great comfort to many so, again, many thanks. "

"29 January 2013 - I would like to thank you again, for your work in photographing these graves. But sometimes 'thanks' does not seem like enough. So I've taken the liberty of copying an email from my mother that you may like to see. The photo of Uncle Peter's grave meant a lot to her, and I. Hi son! You cannot imagine my thoughts when I found the Linklater message, if only I had been able to let my Gramma know his location, you have no idea how she fretted as she had no communication that I know of as to any of that, and she had grieved thinking he had been buried at sea. She never really got over that, he was a very young man to lose his life at that time. I had tears in my eyes, and the only one that might be interested in it now, would be Stan. thank you for it all! "

"22nd January 2013 - Hi I just wanted to say Thank you so much for this, it is wonderful. Samuel is my Grandad's brother and we found out about him whilst doing our family tree. We were told he was missing in action. It is so good to have some information about him at last. We just need to try and find out what happened to him now. Keep up the fantastic work, you must bring much happiness to people who are looking for loved ones I will not hesitate to recommend you "

"8th January 2013- I am writing to say a massive thank you to TWGPP and especially Steve for their fantastic work and for the photo they found of my father in laws father who was killed in Burma, aged 36 Dec 29th 1944, my father in law was 7 years of age when he lost his father and now 78 years later still talks about him everyday it is something he has never got over, when I saw the photo it moved me to tears so I know that when we give him the photo for his birthday it will mean so much as he can see how his fathers grave is looked after, and hopefully we can arrange for him to go out to visit his grave on day soon. Thank you so much for all your work and commitment to helping people with their grieving process. "

"5th Jan 2013 Many thanks TWGPP and to the volunteer photographers, Pte Thomas Clark Dewar, date of birth 9th May 1895, died 19/12/15, was my great grandfather's younger brother. They were very close (he was Best Man at my great grandfather's wedding in 1912) and he spoke about him often to the family including his grand daughter, my mum. My mum will be thrilled by this picture. This means a lot to my family, so many heartfelt thanks. "

"19th December 2012 - I would like to send my thanks for the efforts of your organisation, I just wanted to let you know that my mother Iris is the daughter of Rasmas Jensen, of whom the war grave photo shows. My mother is 82 and ill with emphysema and has never seen her fathers grave and just by seeing this picture will be something I know she will treasure always. Personally, I don't think enough is done to remember our fallen, but at least there are people like you that do help to carry on their memory. again, thank you and all the best, "
