The Place to Be

Keyworth Baptist Church

One hundred years ago on 12 October 1918 a young, 18 year old Private from the Manchester Regiment died on a French battlefield. Unfortunately, like many others, he has no known grave, but his name is etched for ever into the honeyed stone of panel 9 at the Vis en Artois military cemetery 6 km south east of Arras. He was Fred Heeley, my father’s older brother. I visited the cemetery about twenty years ago. I think I was probably the first member of the family to do so.
