A War Grave in Stithians

Rhiannon Stevenson, a student at Penair School, has been helping with research in Heart of Conflict. We've tracked down information about a war grave in Stithians. Joseph Martin from the village died in a hospital up north in 1917 after serving in World War One. We don't know much about him or the details, but Rhiannon manages to find his grave.  Hopefully we can start to discover more. Fr Simon Bone, the vicar at Stithians, has kindly offered to offer prayers or hold a short service to honour the grave during the WW1 centenary years.s.
