Hull Northern Cemetery is situated on the road to Cottingham: the main entrance being on the corner of Chanterlands Avenue. There are 298 casualties of the Second World War ( 50 of those forming a war plot ), together with 69 First World War casualties scattered throughout the vast cemetery, and a further 45 1st World War names mentioned elsewhere. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) are responsible for all these graves, together with the memorial site and the Portland stone screen wall, cross and memorials.I was unable to find the headstone for Sergeant Arthur Reginald Thorpe ( although it has been photographed previously by other supporters ) I might have found it with some prior research at Hull History Centre.

Today they lie in cemeteries across the old battlefield in northern France or are remembered among the 72,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. By using our interactive map, you can find out what happened to them.
