Does anyone live near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire?

I want a picture of a War Grave in a local Cemetery.

I know exactly where the grave is. Just hoping someone lives locally and can send me a picture for a newspaper article I am planning.

Findagrave has photos of lots of graves and has volunteers if you put in a request

Try the Cambridgeshire Branch of the Western Front Association, I have found them in the past. to be very helpful in taken photos.

I was forgetting about http://www.britishwargraves.co.uk/ again I've had lots of help from them in the past. Another option is https://www.twgpp.org/ The War Graves Photographic Project - but they seem to look for a donation (not an unreasonable thing to ask I should add)

Maybe even worth popping the details up on here

I use to be part of your 1st link, and I have in the past used the CWGC for one photo, and as you say, with a small donation, I give £5.00 and I received their magazine.
