When my grandpa was alive he would take me to Rotherham cenotaph to see his cousins name on the memorial plaque. Even though he died in 1978 I never forgot the visits so when I grew up I looked into his cousin and found that Bernard Cadman was killed near Mametz Wood on 18/7/1916 while fighting with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He is also remembered at Thiepval. I visited the woods in 2015 to lay a cross near where he was killed.
