PostSubject: Help Wanted Finding Relative   25/2/2010, 14:36

I am trying to find the location of my friends brothers grave who died as a child during the allied occupation of Hamburg in 1947. We know he was buried in the Hamburg area and he was living with his father in Cuxhaven while his father was serving with the Royal Marines.

We have a photo of his gravestone and a copy of his birth certificate stating that he was born in the British Military Hospital Hamburg, March 16th 1947 and died May 25th 1947. His name was Leonard Arthur Ogelsby, we have tried in vain through various institutions to try and trace the whereabouts of his grave and we would be grateful if anyone with local knowledge of the Hamburg area could help us with our search.

Thank you in anticipation Dave Cooke & Kath Lovatt

Hello Dave:
That could be a hard one in Germany. If the young lad was buried in a civilian cemetery chances are that the grave plot has be re-used which is the custom. War time cemeteries are left alone though. I know in the case of the Canadian cemetery in Werl Germany that special arrangements were made to keep it as it is for the next 100 years. This cemetery dates from NATO times not war time, so the reason for it's extension. Best of luck in your search.

David
The information you posted regarding the service details of LCpl Ogelsby is confirmed by the outline details I hold on all Naval Parties based in Germany in the late 1940s
